August 01, 2022 August is LIHEAP Action Month!
August is LIHEAP Action Month – an opportunity to highlight the federally funded Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program which provides help to vulnerable households and families to cover heating and cooling costs and avoid having to choose between energy and other basic needs, like medicine and housing. Designated by the National Energy & Utility Affordability Coalition to help raise awareness of the critical nature of LIHEAP, this program offers relief to millions of people every year who reply on the service.
In Michigan, only 22 percent of the eligible population received LIHEAP funding in 2021. Please ask Congress to maximize LIHEAP funding in 2023!Learn More
