WASHINGTON, DC – January 31, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) joined 103 members of Congress today to urge President Obama to help Minnesotans heat their homes during winter. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps low-income families and seniors with their energy bills, which is crucial during cold Minnesota winters. The number of families eligible for the program vastly exceeds the funds available. This funding remains a lifeline during the economic downturn as energy costs continue to rise.
