More HEAP funds made available for NY

January 31, 2014

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer announced that $50.6 million in home heating assistance funds will be made available to New York State for immediate use. In early January, Schumer had urged the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to immediately release the millions in reserve funds from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) intended for New York, and also successfully fought for an increase in funding for the program in the FY 2014 Appropriations Bill. As a result, HHS will release $454 million in home heating aid nationwide today, to be made available to states as early as tomorrow. Eligible New Yorkers can then access that federal funding through the State.
