Low income families in Alabama can get some help from the feds in paying heating and air conditioning bills.
Community Action Agencies across the state will be managing a million dollars in grant money to help those citizens with energy bills.
Lieutenant Governor Lucy Baxley says they were able to land the federal funds at the National Lieutenant Governor's Conference, where Baxley sponsored the resolution to get the funds.
Baxley says how much each person gets will depend on their ability to pay.
It's part of a $195 million federal program.
Baxley says applicants need to act fast because the funds will probably go quickly.
