BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Low-income North Dakotans are getting some added help to pay heating and other energy costs this winter.

Families and seniors living in low-income households will receive more than $1.7 million in Low Income Heating Assistance Program funding from the Department of Health and Human Services. Another $540,000 is available for North Dakota’s Native American tribes.

The state’s three members of Congress announced the award Wednesday. They say the money is in addition to more than $23 million the state received through the program last fall, bringing the total sent from Washington this winter to more than $25.4 million.
