Last year the Central Arkansas Development Council got $6 million to help low income families pay their heating bills. This year the council got $4 million.
CADC Executive Secretary Lavel Neal says she's concerned "that we're not going to be able to help as many people or it could go as low as not being able to help anyone."
Hundreds lined up Monday morning at the state fairgrounds in Little Rock to enroll for assistance.
Organizers are holding mass intake sessions every day this week through Friday to assist those in need.
Neal says the council will continue enrollments until the money runs out.
Congress last year slated about $1.6 billion from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
The National Energy Assistance Director's Association estimates one million household will lose their benefits as a result of that cut.
