Ozark Opportunities Inc. has announced that its Weatherization Assistance Program is continuing, but with a different provider.

The program, now administered by the Arkansas Energy Office of the state Economic Development Commission, will be provided by the Black River Area Development Corp. in Van Buren and five other counties.

Ozark Opportunities Executive Director Toby Atkinson said that weatherization has been "a vital part of our work to assist people of lw income to stabilize their situation and help to achieve greater economic self-sufficiency. We want residents to know that, although there have been changes, the service is still available to those eligible to receive it."
