Heating Help To Expand

The state is promising to help more families stay warm this winter.

The governor says the state received more federal money than expected for its low income home energy assistance program, known as LIHEAP.

The federal government gave Kentucky 68 million dollars for the year. That's more than double what the state received last year.

LIHEAP helped nearly 174,000 families in 2007. They hope to help more than 300,000 this year.

The governor says every year the money for this program runs out before everyone who needs help gets it. This year he's hopeful that won't be the case.
