Massachusetts is getting almost $132 million in federal assistance to help low-income residents heat their homes this winter.
Mass. U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey are among a bipartisan group of 39 senators calling on the federal government to increase funding for a program that helps lower-income families and seniors cover their home heating costs.
The state’s four Roman Catholic bishops are urging Congressional leaders not to cut funding for a program that helps low income families pay for heat.
