AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - More than half of the $450 heating relief checks from the governor have been mailed out.

The Department of Administrative and Financial Services says as of Tuesday, 57% of the checks have been mailed.

The relief payments came as part of Governor Mills’ Emergency Energy Relief Plan to help with high energy costs.

About 880,000 Mainers qualify for the $450 checks.

If you haven’t gotten your check yet, were told most should expect to receive their payment by the end of March.
