More families in New Hampshire can now get help with their fuel bill this winter.
Congress increased funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, this week.
New Hampshire will receive a total of $26 million, rather than the $14.7 million dollars originally allotted.
That original appropriation forced Community Action Agencies to target the money to families of four earning less than $28,000.
Other low-income households were placed on a waiting list.
