WINSTON COUNTY - Governor Kay Ivey has awarded a grant in the amount of $150,545 to Community Action Partnership of North Alabama, Inc., which serves Winston, Marion, Cullman, Lawrence and Morgan counties. The grant will be used to help low-income households with home energy costs this winter.
“As we enter the coldest months of the year, many low-income residents find themselves in even tougher situations and may struggle to afford higher heating bills along with other needs,” Ivey said. “These grants provide additional funding to assist in lowering the costs for many of them.”
The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grants from funds made available by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. These grants are supplemental to grant funds of $63 million awarded through the state’s yearly Low-Income Home Energy Assistance allocation earlier this year.
Those in need of assistance can call (256) 355-7843.
