Maine is getting more than  million in LIHEAP funding

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) – Money is crucial for many families to heat their homes each year.

Even more so this year as the cost of energy has risen.

Maine is getting $42.5 million.

Senator Susan Collins was part of a bipartisan effort to secure billions more in LIHEAP funding.

This additional funding gives Maine a boost of more than $7 million in LIHEAP, on top of the state’s regular allocation.

In a statement Collins says the average price of home heating oil is currently a whopping $5.42 per gallon.

Last year, more than 30,000 Maine households benefited from LIHEAP.
