HHS Provides Over $131 Million In Energy Assistance

HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt today announced the release of $131 million in energy assistance to help eligible low income homeowners and renters meet home energy costs. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funds are expected to provide states with heating assistance for the fall and winter months ahead.

"No one should suffer from the cold," Secretary Leavitt said. "These funds will put states in a better position to help those in need keep their homes warm when cold weather strikes."
