CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A federal agency has released nearly $26 million in funding to help low-income families in West Virginia with energy bills and energy-efficiency upgrades.

The money comes from The Administration for Children and Families and its Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.

The administration is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Jeannie Chaffin, the agency’s Community Services director, says the money will help families with children and seniors keep their homes at a safe temperature.

Individuals interested in applying for energy assistance should contact their local, state, territory or tribal assistance program or call 866-674-6327.
