Grants help with home energy
LANSING (AP) — More than $54 million in grants have been awarded to community service agencies to help low-income Michigan residents who fall behind on home energy bills.
Michigan Energy Assistance Program grant agencies help with payments that can be used to meet home heating and electricity costs on primary residences.
The Michigan Public Service Commission says assistance can cover full or partial payment of one or more bills for electric, natural gas, propane, heating oil, or any other deliverable fuel used to provide heat.
Grant agencies also provide weatherization improvements and other energy self-sufficiency services to reduce energy waste.
