Federal Shutdown Could Affect LIHEAP Home Heating Help

MAINE - The federal shutdown might leave Mainers who need help heating their homes in the cold this winter. 

Thousands of families throughout the state depend on federal heating assistance through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, know as LIHEAP. 


Since Congress hasn't approved a definite amount of money for LIHEAP for the coming year, state officials don't know how much money they'll have to distribute to Maine families.  State agencies are taking applications for LIHEAP assistance and officials are telling residents not to get discouraged.
