The average benefit was $386 per household.</p><p>Now those same families will receive another $103 toward their utilities this summer.</p><p>The funding is what was left over from the winter program. It’s an additional benefit, not a new application, so there’s no paperwork required.</p><p>In most cases, the money goes directly to gas and electric providers.</p> Fri, 12 Jul 2013 21:26:33 +0000 Bryan Thompson 20307 at http://kmuw.org
