The Crisis Intervention Program is a federally funded program that helps low-income families pay their heating bills in times of crisis. This year, the county received less money from the program. Funds were cut from $1.3 million to just less than $870,000.
Because of the reduction, the state came out with revised recommended guidelines for who would qualify for help.
Of course it did. Instead of looking for funds elsewhere, NC Republicans just shake their heads like they have no idea why this happened.
