Don’t Let Trump Freeze Us Out
Have you ever gone to sleep shivering in your own home? Going without heat due to financial constraints is a reality for millions of Americans. Thankfully, a government program called LIHEAP, or Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, helps these families with energy costs to keep them safe in cold weather. But President Trump’s budget would cut this program entirely.
That means in California, 219,178 people would have to choose between buying food and keeping the heat on.
Some facts about the importance of LIHEAP:
- LIHEAP provided funding for over 6.8 million low income households
- 92% of these households had either an elderly person, a child under 18, or a person with disabilities 
- Harmful temperature conditions can lead to respiratory illnesses, such as asthma 
- Other evidence suggests that children in “energy insecure” homes are more likely to experience poor health and developmental delays 
Don’t let thousands of families in your state freeze next winter. Call your Senator today to stop these cuts.
