Recent activity


Our efforts have generally focused on three objectives:


  • Educating state and federal officials about the challenges many of Michigan’s low-income residents face
  • Working with state officials to improve how energy assistance is delivered
  • Helping low-income individuals understand and utilize available assistance options
  • Working with non-profit and other partners across the state to develop best practices
  • Increasing public awareness about the need for energy assistance and ways to help




 


The Coalition recent activity includes the following:


  • Submitting comments at the Michigan Public Service Commission in case U-18120 affecting the recent proposed modifications to customer billing rules.  The Coalition made comments in regard to ensuring additional protections for those needing medical assistance shut-off protection.
  • Helping our partners across the county get the word out on the continued need for LIHEAP appropriations.  To help in this effort, go here.
  • Providing education and information to our members of Congress at their district offices so that they have valuable information to help Michiganders at their fingertips.
  • Participating in the National Neuac LIIHEAP action day in Washington, DC on February 15.  Thirteen members did the "fly-in" and were well received by our congressional delegation!!
