Here's a friendly reminder that eligible Michigan residents have just over a month to apply for a credit that will help with their winter energy bills. According to the Michigan Agency for Energy, the deadline to apply for the Home Heating Credit in 2016 is September 30th.

There are also special exemptions that are available for the deaf, blind or those with disabilities. Click here for more information.
