Heating Assistance Funding Drops Again
The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, will once again see funding cuts this year. The program has seen funding drop each year since 2008. Since registration began this season, some 30,000 households in New Hampshire have applied for fuel assistance. Celeste Lovett, fuel assistance program manager at the New Hampshire Office of Energy Planning talked with Morning Edition to explain what the funding reduction could mean for those applicants.
