CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia is getting $26 million in federal funding to help low-income families keep warm this winter.

The funding is part of a $3 billion package nationwide being released by the government under the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The state’s share was announced by U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall.

The program is funded by the U.S. Health and Human Services Department. States can use the funds to help needy households pay for utility costs. They aid can also be used for weatherization assistance to reduce a household’s energy costs.
