Catholic Charities on KDKA's Pittsburgh Works
This coming winter, households are expected to pay ~17.2% more for home heat, compared to a year ago, which translates into a two-year hike of 35%+ .
- Those who heat with natural gas can expect increased costs of ~34%.
- Heating oil is expected to jump 12.8%.
- Those whose heat runs on electricity can anticipate a 7% hike.
No matter the increase, it’s too much for many of our neighbors in SWPA already struggling with increased food and housing costs.
Catholic Charities has launched a $1 million fundraiser between now and the New Year to address urgent need and help position individuals and family for long-term stability.
Meeting Need. Strengthening Lives. Building Stability.
