Millions Approved for Home Heating Assistance

February 21, 2024

The Connecticut General Assembly 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.

The House and Senate approved the measure unanimously, and the bill took effect immediately after the governor signed it into law last week. The Connecticut Department of Social Services and Operation Fuel will work to ensure this funding gets to those in need.

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. 

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