Gov. Lamont announces $21 million in supplemental federal funding for home heating assistance

Gov. Ned Lamont announced $21 million in emergency supplemental funding for the state's energy assistance program.
Sen. Chris Murphy, Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Rep. Rosa DeLauro are highlighting the passage of a federal appropriations package containing $1 billion for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.   
The funding will provide about $21 million in additional funding for Connecticut’s program to help ensure that the state’s residents are able to safely heat their homes this winter.
