Congressman Cohen Almost Doubles Help For Tennessee Families Through Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program

MEMPHIS – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today highlighted a new report from the White House describing how it provided nearly double the regular annual investment to help Tennessee families pay for energy costs. In total, Congressman Cohen helped raise $ 130.4 million for Tennessee through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) in the US bailout and annual appropriations, nearly more than twice the $ 66.1 million last year. As Americans continue to grapple with the impact of the pandemic and high energy costs, Tennessee families and seniors can use these investments to lower the costs of staying warm this winter, covering utilities, and paying. energy repairs.

Congressman Cohen made the following statement:

“As hardworking residents of Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District continue to recover from the pandemic, this additional investment through credits and the US bailout that I have helped spend is helping families pay for energy costs and stay warm, safe and healthy this winter. It was a smart investment in our community.
