LIHEAP officials uncertain about energy assistance funding

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Officials say inaction by Congress has made planning heating assistance for low in-income Iowans uncertain.

Last year, the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program delivered an average of $600  to more than 100,000 Iowa homes. The current federal budget cycle ends in October.

Without a plan in place, Congress will have to adopt a continuing resolution to keep government running.
