Schumer Says Funding Available to Help New Yorkers With Heating Bills

Senator Chuck Schumer says there is additional funding that will help thousands of New Yorkers stay warm this winter.

He says one-billion-dollars is going towards the federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program -- which provides people with money to pay their heating bills.

The money is coming from a temporary budget bill that was passed by Congress.

Utility companies are projecting a spike in heating bills in the coming months because of the conflict in Ukraine and supply chain issues caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
