Senator Warren Applauds Release of Federal Heating Aid

WASHINGTON, DC — United States Senator Elizabeth Warren applauded the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s (HHS) initial release of $131,791,505 in Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funding to Massachusetts. Senator Warren sent a letter with her Senate colleagues earlier this month calling on HHS to release LIHEAP funding quickly and at as high a level as possible. 

“Because thousands of families across the Commonwealth depend on federal LIHEAP aid to heat their homes, this funding is absolutely critical,” said Senator Warren. “The Massachusetts delegation will continue to work with the Administration to increase funding for LIHEAP so that families can pay their energy bills and stay safe as temperatures drop.”
