MIDDLEBURY — Officials at the organization Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects (HOPE) are bracing for what they believe will be a substantial spike in requests for assistance from area residents unable to pay their fuel and utility bills.

This is assistance accorded to people who have exhausted their own resources and governmental assistance programs.
