Severe Winter Puts Freeze on Cooling Program

6-20-14 Summer Cooling Assistance picThe Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program used the majority of available funds during this year’s harsh winter.

Over the winter, more than 47 million dollars in home heating assistance was provided to approximately 130 low-income households. Unfortunately, this means there is little left for summer cooling assistance. Assistance can only be offered in crisis situations or if health is a factor.
