Las Vegas, NV – Today Congresswoman Dina Titus, representing Nevada's First District, announced that Nevada will receive a significant allocation of $15.2 million in Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funds. This vital funding, provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) through the Administration for Children & Families (ACF), will help lower heating costs for Nevada's low-income families during the upcoming winter season.
This $15.2 million allocation is part of a nationwide initiative to provide a total of nearly $3.7 billion in LIHEAP funds. This funding combines regular appropriations by Congress, an additional $2.5 billion from the recently passed Continuing Resolution, and an extra $100 million supplement passed as part of President Biden's bipartisan infrastructure bill, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which Congresswoman Titus worked to craft and voted in support of.“LIHEAP has served as a lifeline for families who struggle to make ends meet and face the challenge of keeping their homes warm during the colder months. I am proud to have voted for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and pushed for additional funding to support Nevada's most vulnerable residents. This funding will make a profound difference in the lives of Nevadans, ensuring they can afford to keep their homes heated during the winter months.”
