Governor announces federal funding for heating, cooling assistance

Additional federal funding that will help low-income Kentuckians pay their heating and cooling bills is coming to the state, Governor Andy Beshear announced this week.

Kentucky will receive $1.5 million through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, with the first installment of a five-year, $500 million investment in LIHEAP provided by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Residents interested in applying for this assistance may contact Kentucky Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, managed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services at 1-866-674-6327.
