Washington, DC (Learfield)  --  Minnesota agencies are sharing more than 101-million dollars in federal home heating aid to keep low income people warm for at least the first part of the winter.

U-S Senate Democrats Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar have announced the release of the funds, as part of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.  Franken says many seniors and families will appreciate the support, as they get their homes ready for the cold weather.
