  • In the wake of the dangerously low temperatures that hit Minnesota the first week in January, U.S. Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.) today released a report on critical heating assistance that helps tens of thousands of Minnesota families and seniors afford to keep their homes warm each winter.
    The senators said that federal support for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) has been cut drastically over the past few years. In response, Sens. Klobuchar and Franken released a county-by-county report on LIHEAP funding in Minnesota and said they plan to redouble their efforts to increase support for the critical program, which in 2012 helped more than 160,000 Minnesota households pay to heat their homes.
    The report, compiled by the Campaign for Home Energy Assistance, shows the funding levels for LIHEAP in each Minnesota county in 2012. You can see the report here or see a county-by-county breakdown in the American-News.
