The extreme heat is prompting state administrators to revive a program that helps low-income families cool their homes.
A Cook County non-profit organization is launching a public awareness campaign to remind you about the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, known as LIHEAP.
Nov. 1 has arrived, and no doubt, radiators and furnaces have been turned on for many residents. For low-income families, help available to pay for heating costs.
Low-income families reliant on state and federal assistance to pay energy bills were out of luck this summer, and they could be out of luck in the coming winter as well.
The heat was not as oppressive Wednesday as it has been for much of the past few weeks. Nonetheless, protesters were out in front of the Thompson Center, seeking monetary relief from the heat.
Activists angered by human services budget cuts in Washington blocked an intersection at rush hour Friday, prompting arrests.
