(IDAHO FALLS) – A federally-funded program aimed at helping low-income families save money on their utilities has run out of money itself. Eastern Idaho Community Action Partnership has been working for the last 25 years to improve energy efficiency. Local News 8 reports that the group is asking the Department of Energy for $800,000 a year, much less than previous years. Organizers say that amount would be able to cover weatherization costs for about 150 homes each year.
