LIHEAP helps California campaign

Under the President's budget proposal for 2018, LIHEAP is slated for elimination. LIHEAP is a vital source of assistance for low-income households. Even fully funded, program resources are insufficient to meet the needs of all eligible households. The proposed cuts would only make matters worse.
