Kentucky will receive double the funding expected for the state's Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, Gov. Steve Beshear said Friday.
The state will get more than $68 million in federal funds for the program instead of an anticipated $30 million.
Kentucky's Cabinet for Health and Family Services will disburse the funds to Community Action Kentucky, which will then distribute money to families that require assistance.
Community Action Kentucky agencies will begin accepting applications Nov. 3. For more information, visit http://www.kaca.org or call 1-800-456-3452.
