Help available to pay energy bills

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently released $17,287,451 in contingency funding to help eligible low-income homeowners and renters in Florida meet home energy costs.

These Low Income Home Energy Assistance contingency funds will provide Florida with additional assistance to pay heating and electricity costs.

During these tight economic times, states and communities across the country have seen increased demand on key services, such as energy assistance for low-income families. And the record cold snap in places that traditionally doesn’t see weather as cold as it has been this year has put even more pressure on families in these states.

According to Sebelius, the energy subsidies will help more families in Florida afford heat and avert difficult choices too many Americans face between paying for heat and paying for other essentials like food and medicine.

LIHEAP helps eligible families pay for home heating, cooling and other energy costs, as well as helping to weatherize eligible families’ homes.

In recent years, more than 6 million low-income households across the country received assistance under LIHEAP.

Individuals interested in applying for energy assistance should contact their local/state LIHEAP agency. In Pinellas County, call Pinellas County Urban League Inc. at 327-2081 or visit pcul.org.
