Gov. Patrick announces $141M in LIHEAP funds

Posted 11/26/12

BOSTON – Massachusetts will receive $141 million in federal funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The figure represents an increase of $8.2 million from the previous year’s funding, Gov. Deval L. Patrick announced last week.

Patrick said in a statement that the funding will be allocated to 22 local administering agencies that will distribute benefits to more than 200,000 Massachusetts households in need.

The fuel-assistance funds provide eligible households with help in paying a portion of their winter heating bills. Eligibility for the program is based on household size and the gross annual income of every household member, 18 years of age or older. The maximum income eligibility for LIHEAP is 60 percent of estimated state median income. Benefit levels will vary depending on household income, the statement said.

Funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, LIHEAP is managed by The Department of Housing and Community Development in conjunction with 22 regional nonprofit and local government organizations. •
