Rep. Lipinski Offers Assistance on High Heating Costs

 
Congressman Lipinski: LIHEAP Heating Assistance Still Available, 
But Funds Running Low

CHICAGO, IL - U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-03) announced today that heating assistance is still available through his office for moderate income individuals and families this winter, but time is running out.

"Although we are now in the depths of winter and the first huge heating bills have arrived in the mail, there is still help available through the Low Income Heating Assistance Program (LIHEAP)," Congressman Lipinski said. "However, funds for this program are not infinite - I urge all eligible individuals and families to take advantage of this program as soon as possible."

More than 1,500 constituents have applied through the Congressman's office for LIHEAP assistance since November. To make an appointment to discuss LIHEAP income eligibility criteria, please call Congressman Lipinski's Chicago office at (312) 886-0481 or visit http://www.house.gov/lipinski/.
