Indiana out of money for LIHEAP cooling assistance programs

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana has no money for cooling assistance programs this summer.

A frigid, cold winter exhausted nearly $48 million from the state's Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

LIHEAP pays enough of an energy bill to keep the utility running when people are facing shutoff. It helped more than 130,000 Indiana households this winter.

Louisville does not administer LIHEAP during the summer, but leaders say a similar program with the city's neighborhood place centers is also short funds.
