New State Funding Efforts Target Utility Bill Struggles

More relief could be on the way in some Kentucky communities.

Posted: Jan 25, 2021 8:03 PM

Kentuckians may soon have a new source to turn to when it comes to overdue utilities.

The state is offering cities and counties up to $200,00 dollars each to share with residents in need.

If local governments apply, those living in Kentucky could get up to $250 per month for a 6 month period.

In total, the Bluegrass has $38 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to hand out to those struggling to pay their electric, gas, water, or sewer bills.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
