Sen. Blumenthal to push for increased funding for local nonprofits helping families in 2024

Senator Richard Blumenthal says he's going to be pushing for new federal funding in 2024 to assist local nonprofits that help families stay warm during the winter. 
Blumenthal says organizations - like Bridgeport's Monitor My Health - play an important role in preventing financial issues from becoming mental health issues. 
The head of Monitor My Health says a big part of staying healthy is avoiding stress. The nonprofit works to help people heat their homes -- as well as stay healthy by eating nutritious foods.
