Low Income Energy Assistance Fund Will Impact Need in Northern Michigan

Posted: Updated:

It may be July, but Lansing is thinking ahead to winter.

The bill signed by the Governor yesterday will create the Low Income Energy Assistance Fund.

It will not only help those who need help paying their heat and energy bill, but local charities who assist low income families.

9 &10's Meredith Barack and photojournalist Jeff Blevins spoke with one northern Michigan group who says this legislation is a relief.
