Millions Approved for Home Heating Assistance

February 15, 2024

Punxsutawney Phil and Manchester's own Chuckles the Groundhog's prediction of an early spring has been quickly proved wrong.  It’s still winter, it’s still cold, and the threat of a snowstorm is still reality. Keeping everybody warm in their home has been priority of mine, especially to people with low incomes. We’ve long provided heating assistance, but we needed more funding.

During Wednesday's session, we approved $17 million in additional cold weather heating assistance funds – many residents and families who receive assistance through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) or Operation Fuel will have access to funds to ensure they can heat their homes through the cold weather season.


As your State Representative, it is my responsibility to stand up for my constituents. This funding ensures that none of our neighbors must choose between paying their bills or freezing.

I am committed to enhancing the safety and quality of life for all residents, and I will continue to do so throughout this legislative session.
