Maloney Announces $340 Million to Help NY Families Cover Energy Costs This Winter

November 11, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – On November 9, Congresswoman Carolyn B Maloney (D-NY) announced $340,283,934 to help hardworking New York families with energy costs this winter through the Department of Health and Human Services’ Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

As Americans continue to deal with the impacts of the pandemic, LIHEAP grantees will be able to use the funding appropriated by Congress, along with funding made available through the American Rescue Plan, to help more than 5 million households stay warm this winter, cover utility costs, and pay for energy repairs.

“New Yorkers are still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. This investment will help families to afford energy costs and stay warm, safe, and healthy this winter,” said Rep. Maloney.

These funds are in addition to $535,967,074 New York families received in May from the American Rescue Plan to help cover energy costs during the summer months.
