Heating assistance for eligible homes

(01/28/03) NORWALK - If you are having trouble paying those high heating bills from our recent freezing days and nights, some help is on the way. Governor Rowland (R-CT) says he'll use an additional $6.9 million in federal funding to give assistance to seniors, people with disabilities and families with children. The state received the money last week.

The heating program, dubbed the Contingency Heating Assistance Program (CHAP), started two years ago, but was closed because of a lack of federal funding.

The governor's office says 14,000 households received assistance under the program last year.
