(LANSING, Mich.) Cold winter weather can mean high heating bills. On Monday, Michigan's Attorney General Dana Nessel and Consumers Energy announced that there is financial assistance available for people who are struggling to pay their heating bills. Millions of dollars from state, federal, and local sources are available to help people who need some assistance. Part of that money is available because of federal stimulus money. “We know February’s brutal cold is leaving our friends and neighbors with high energy bills, but they should know they can take action now that can make a huge difference," said Nessel. Michigan residents who need help paying energy bills can call 2-1-1 to be connected with different non-profit organizations across the state. People can also go online to the 2-1-1 website at If you are struggling to pay energy bills you can also apply for a home heating credit on the Michigan Department of the Treasury's website.
