  •  Summary: The first national study of the effect of energy costs for poor families shows an alarming impact on basic needs, the National Energy Assistance Directors’ Association (NEADA) announced today. Among the findings in the NEADA study: over 25% of families in the survey sacrificed medical care, failed to make a rent or mortgage payment – and 22% went without food for at least a day.
  • This report shows that families who can’t pay their home energy bills not only can’t keep the family warm – they have agonizing problems keeping them fed or healthy.
