[FEB. 6, 2007]  The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program will have an informational workshop on Friday from 9 until 11:30 a.m. at CIEDC headquarters, 1800 Fifth St. in Lincoln. The workshop is free to all, and Keep Warm Energy Kits will be available to households that are LIHEAP-eligible.

LIHEAP staff will suggest to participants different ways to make a home more energy-efficient and discuss the amounts of energy that appliances use and waste every day. Kelly Comerford, LIHEAP assistant coordinator, says, "You would be surprised just how much energy is being used by a TV that is constantly on but not being watched."

CIEDC also provides senior programs in Logan and Mason counties.
