Governor Rick Snyder said the Department of Human Services is working with the legislature to dedicate $7 million to the Low Income Heating and Energy Assistance Program.┬áThat’s in addition to the $7 million dollars already devoted to deliverable fuel heating assistance from the Michigan Energy Assistance program.

Earlier this week, Snyder and six other governors from around the Midwest wrote a letter to President Obama for assistance in the propane shortage.

Snyder’s office is asking anyone in need of heating assistance to visit michigan.gov/heatingassistance.
