PMAA Urges Congress To Fully Fund LIHEAP As Appropriations Process Gets Underway
July 13, 2020
As the U.S. House appropriations subcommittees began advancing twelve Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 bills last week, PMAA sent a letter urging Congress to fully fund the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) at $5.1 billion.
Senate GOP leadership have also expressed interest in adding appropriations bills to the next COVID-19 relief package which could include additional money for LIHEAP.
Meanwhile, the House FY 2021 Agriculture appropriations bill includes provisions that would block the Trump Administration from implementing new restrictions on eligibility and benefits under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
