INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana has no money left to help low-income people pay their cooling bills this summer because it used all its funding in paying $47.8 million to help pay winter heating bills.
The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority announced Monday it had no money for the summer Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program after helping more than 130,000 households during winter.
The summer program has traditionally provided a $50 benefit directly to utility companies for households that participated in the winter program. The authority says administrating agencies with remaining funds may provide crisis assistance of $200 or less to eligible households who receive disconnection notices through August.
The authority also says summer cooling program participants may be eligible to receive air conditioners after submitting required medical affidavits.
