UNDATED -- The St. Cloud area is on pace for a third straight year of record heating assistance applications.  And at the same time, Congress still hasn't approved any more funding for the program.

Angie Theisen is the Executive Director for Tri-CAP.  She says if you haven't applied for help yet, you still can do so.

Theisen says they're about 620 applications ahead of last year at this time.  They helped over 7,700 people last winter.
