Branstad Declares Energy Emergency

Branstad Declares Energy Emergency

Des Moines, IA (KICD)–Governor Branstad has declared a proclamation of disaster and energy emergency due to the record high demand for propane throughout the upper Midwest.
This Proclamation activates the disaster response and recovery aspect of the Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Department s Iowa Emergency Response Plan.
Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Human and Health Services released a second Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program appropriation of over $7.419 million to the State of Iowa to help Iowa families heat their homes during the cold weather.
Additionally, the Branstad-Reynolds administration launched the Propane Shortage and Heating Assistance Webpage. This webpage is a one-stop shop with information regarding low-income home energy assistance program (LIHEAP), reductions in regulatory burdens to propane transport, energy, cost-saving tips and other resources for Iowans.
The propane shortage and cold weather conditions may prompt Iowans to seek alternative sources of heat. The Propane Shortage and Heating Assistance Webpage contains important safety information for those using space heaters and other heat sources.
