BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The money is crucial for many families to warm their homes each year.
Even more this year as energy costs skyrocket.
Maine is getting $42.5 million.
Senator Susan Collins was part of a bipartisan effort to secure billions more in LIHEAP funding.
This supplemental funding gives Maine a more than $7 million boost in LIHEAP, on top of the state’s typical allocation.
In a release Collins says the average price of home heating oil is currently a staggering $5.42 per gallon.
Last year, more than 30,000 Maine households benefitted from LIHEAP.
