FREDERICTON - A government program aimed at keeping New Brunswickers warm over the winter months has finished early.
The province and private sector partnered with the Salvation Army to provide $1 million in emergency heating help to low-income families.
Diane van der Horden of the Salvation Army says the program was scheduled to run until April but the money has run out.
About 7,000 applications were received but only 2,200 qualified for assistance.
People who already receive social assistance were not eligible to receive heating help.
