Cuts in LIHEAP funding likely

Posted: Friday, April 22, 2011 12:00 pm

The agency that distributes the money for the federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program in Calloway County says that a large budget cut will have a huge impact on financially struggling families and the local economy next winter.

LIHEAP is funded by the federal government through the United States Department of Health and Human Services, which then distributes money to the states. Within Kentucky, the money is not only distributed to 120 counties, but also dispersed among 23 community service agencies. One of those agencies is the local arm of the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, which subcontracts to West Kentucky Allied Services to allocate funds to families who need them. In addition to Calloway County, WKAS has offices in seven other western counties.
