Heating assistance expanded in Minnesota

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Pointing to the continued propane shortage, Governor Dayton is expanding eligibility for the state's heating assistance program.

Income guidelines will increase so households of four, making less than about $52-thousand a year will be eligible -- and officials expect an additional 30-to 40-thousand households will apply.

Governor Dayton has also asked the Federal government for additional funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance, or LIHEAP Program.

He also notified top state lawmakers that, if Federal money doesnt' come through, he'll ask the legislature for $17-million to beef up the program.
