Gov. Ivey allocates over $46 million to assist low-income families in covering heating and cooling expenses

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs announced that Governor Kay Ivey will give more than $46 million in grants to multiple community service organizations to help low-income households with heating and cooling bills.

Eighteen organizations that provide emergency aid will receive the funds, according to ADECA.

“High energy bills can be an overwhelming burden for families that are already struggling to meet their basic needs,” Ivey said in a statement. “These grants will help low-income Alabama residents weather the cold winter ahead as well as the hot summer months to come.”

Local community agencies accept applications from residents seeking assistance through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The awards are administered by the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs using funding provided by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

“Adequate heating and cooling are essential in any household, particularly for the elderly and other vulnerable populations,” stated ADECA Director Kenneth Boswell. “ADECA joins Gov. Ivey in support of these community agencies that provide relief to those in need.”
