WASHINGTON (WCAX) - Vermont is receiving $25.4 million in low-income heating assistance this winter.

Vermont’s congressional delegation announced Wednesday that the traditional $19.1 million in funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, was supplemented with an additional $6.2 million to address rising energy costs.

Senator Patrick Leahy said this funding will help low-income households pay for home heating costs this winter and cover unpaid utility bills.

These funds will also help families make cost-effective home energy repairs to lower their heating and cooling bills.
