Snyder Signs Low Income Energy Assistance Legislation

courtesy Governor Snyder

Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill on Monday that will create a fund for low income energy assistance in state.

The Senate Bill creates the Low Income Energy Assistance Fund (LIEAF). It authorizes the Public Service Commission to raise up to $50 million for low income energy assistance in Michigan. An additional $10 million in federal funds for heating assistance will be put into LIEAF to ensure the program will reach those in need across the state. LIEAF will replace the Vulnerable Household Warmth Fund which expired in 2012.

In a statement Snyder said “this is an important bill that will provide a long-term solution to help Michigan’s most vulnerable citizens with their home energy and heating needs.”
