ENERGY ASSISTANCE
More federal funds released for home energy costs for W.Va. low-income families

Reported by: Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va.


The federal government is making an additional $3.9 million available in West Virginia to help low-income residents with home heating and energy costs.

The funding follows the passage of an appropriations bill in Congress this month. In November, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services gave the state $25.3 million while awaiting action on the final fiscal year 2014 appropriations.

The federal assistance program helps low-income families with heating costs in the winter, cooling costs in the summer and home insulation.

In all, the program is making an additional $454 million available in all states after releasing $2.9 billion in November.

In West Virginia, the state Department of Health and Human Resources' Division of Family Assistance oversees the program.
