WASHINGTON, D.C.--New York State is set to receive more than $50M for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
LIHEAP funds help millions of Americans who struggle with their energy bills during the winter season.
"No New York family should ever be left in the cold," Senator Gillibrand said. "But with bitter cold temperatures and rising energy costs, families and seniors who are struggling in this tough economy can't afford to heat their homes. This funding is a lifeline for New Yorkers who rely on it so they can stay warm this winter."
