U.S. Sen. Jacky Rosen, D-Nev., announced Monday that Nevada will receive $24.5 million to support the Low Income Home Energy Assistance program.
The money is funneled through the American Rescue Plan Act to help the state, local entities and tribes address home energy costs.
She said that total is a historic investment and will help low-income households with energy costs, including providing payments and other assistance. She said more than 26,000 Nevada households were assisted in 2020.
In addition, she said more than 80 percent of Nevada households have at least one vulnerable member who is older than 60, younger than 6 or disabled.
