Emergency Energy Assistance Released to Three Montana Tribes
March 16, 2018 – Montana’s Governor Steve Bullock recently announced that $200,000 in emergency energy assistance funding will be released to LIHEAP eligible families on the Northern Cheyenne, Fort Belknap, and Blackfeet reservations.
Governor Bullock said, “Tribal, state, and local leaders and volunteers have come together over the past several weeks to take care of our fellow Montanans during this brutal winter.”
State officials, through regular communication with the tribal officials in those areas, have reported that many residents have exhausted their ability to pay their higher-than-average heating bills, or purchase fuels like wood and propane. In addition to this, tribal officials have stated that all three of the tribes will have soon have exhausted the entirety of their tribe’s LIHEAP crisis funding.
