WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp announced Thursday that North Dakota will receive more than $3.4 million in federal resources to help low-income families, Native American tribes, and seniors heat their homes this winter.

Heitkamp says the funding in recent years has helped over 13,000 households through the winter. She says with this year's exceptionally harsh winter and increased propane costs, the need for funds is great.
