West Virginia Gets $26M to Help Residents Heat Their Homes

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia is getting nearly $26 million from the federal government to help residents heat their homes this winter.

U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito announced the funding Monday from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families.

The money comes from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which helps residents reduce their energy bills and pay for weatherization and energy-related home repairs.
