ALBANY— U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer says federal authorities are releasing $50.6 million more to provide home heating aid to New Yorkers.

Families whose incomes are 150 percent of the federal poverty level or lower are eligible for heating aid.

Schumer says the release for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which he requested in January, should provide critical relief to needy residents and senior citizens during a stretch of especially cold weather.

The Department of Health and Human Services is releasing $454 million nationwide.
