Winter heating assistance


Idaho is the beneficiary of millions of dollars in federal block grants to help low-income people pay to heat their homes this winter. The Congress passed $5.1 billion in funding to the states for winter heating assistance, most of which goes as direct payments to utility companies to offset heating bills.

You can read about the grants in this week's BW, which hits stands tomorrow. Information on who qualifies for the program is available through the Idaho Community Action Partnership, but a small chart below details income guidelines.
