Sinema, Bipartisan Group of Senators Urge Administration to Quickly Release Funding for Arizona Families’ Energy Costs

Oct 19, 2021

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema and a bipartisan group of Senators urged the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to quickly disburse recently-approved Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funding that assists Arizona families facing financial strain with their energy costs.
“Quickly releasing energy funding provides critical economic support to Arizona families and seniors facing financial challenges while ensuring their safe access to essential services,” said Sinema.
LIHEAP assists Arizona families with home energy bills, and weatherization and energy-related minor home repairs. Sinema’s letter urges immediate disbursement of these already-approved federal funds to support LIHEAP, which helps Arizonans stay safe from the risk of health and safety problems arising from unsafe cold and heat.
