“As the ongoing effects of climate change make extreme weather more common, this funding is key to making sure Arizonans are ready and resilient,” Rep. Grijalva said.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Office of Community Services at the Administration for Children and Families announced the award of $3.7 billion to the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
