St.Paul, Minnesota- Minnesotans who are struggling to pay their utility bills are encouraged to apply for assistance via the state’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).
U.S. Senator Tina Smith thinks that the funds can be used for furnace repairs or replacements or to pay people’s monthly home heating costs.

Tina Smith said, “If you end up using this assistance to lower your energy costs, what happens is that the bill you get from your power company is reduced and it can be up to 1,400 dollars over the year”.

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federal program to help low-income households in paying their energy bills and other such expenses. The program assists people with energy-related home repairs, emergency crises, and weatherization.

The applicants having an income of less than 150% of the federal poverty level are eligible to receive assistance under this program.

You can contact the LIHEAP office to get more information on how to apply for assistance or to contact your utility provider.
