Low-Income Families Get Help with Heating Bill

Laramie, Wy – The U-S Energy Department has awarded nearly one-point-two-million dollars in grants to Wyoming to help low-income families weatherize their homes.
The agency says poor families spend an average of 14 percent of their income on energy, compared to three-and-a-half percent for the average American family.
The Energy Department says that weatherization can reduce energy
costs by 218 dollars a year.
The money for Wyoming is part of 95-million dollars awarded
to 20 states.
