SHIMKUS CALLS FOR RELEASE OF LIHEAP FUNDS

 

Congressman John Shimkus has co-signed a letter to President Obama, along with 112 of his colleagues, asking that Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program contingency funds be released.  The letter highlights how current unemployment rates and other economic data allow for the contingency funds to be used under the law. Shimkus said, "The stalled economy and recent cold temperatures will only make future heating bills more difficult for some to pay."  Illinois is set to receive $56,367,691 as a portion of a regular block grant from the Department of Health and Human Services.  The contingency funds would be in addition to this grant.
