NH Gets $2.5 Million In Heating Aid

January 20, 2010

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The federal government is giving New Hampshire an additional $2.5 million in emergency home heating assistance to help low-income and elderly families heat their homes.


Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen announced the funding Wednesday.


The funds come from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. Shaheen and Republican Sen. Judd Gregg were among 47 members of the Senate who pressed the White House in a letter earlier this month to release emergency contingency funds for the program to help states cope with a surge in demand for heating assistance.
