Budget Cuts Affecting LIHEAP

Hundreds of thousands of homes may have to find alternatives for the coming winter.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Budget cuts are affecting the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, for the second year.

With the forced federal budget cuts, around 300,000 households will have to find other ways to heat their homes this winter.

For the 2013-2014 winter, the program will deliver $3.1 billion in heating help. During the recession the program had more than $5 billion, which went to 8 million households.
