#whyLIHEAP is important

By Claire Krawsczyn, Campaign for Home Energy Assistance


As we move into an important election year, the Campaign for Home Energy Assistance is rallying the support of LIHEAP advocates from coast to coast. Now, more than ever, it’s time to remind the nation about the importance of LIHEAP and its impact on families, the elderly, individuals with disabilities and children in our communities.

In an 8-piece video series, we will be sharing with you some of the industry’s leading voices and supporters of LIHEAP, their forward-thinking focus on the program and what it means for your community.

Notable & Quotable:

“I think the average American voter doesn’t know how much of a reach there is in the customers that we see coming through our doors every day asking for LIHEAP.  It is the elderly retiree whose struggling, it’s the single mom whose working a couple of jobs in order to keep the heat on for her children, but its also a lot of working poor families who come through our doors, and I don’t think people really realize how much of a wide swipe there is of the population of working poor families that come in for LIHEAP.”  – Josh Young
