A four-day conference on efforts to weatherize homes has attracted more than 2,000 state and local officials and experts to Indianapolis.
As part of the conference, the U.S. Department of Energy is expected to announce that it's releasing nearly $53 million in additional funds for Indiana to help consumers make their homes more energy efficient.
Earlier this year, the Energy Department announced that Indiana would receive about $132 million in weatherization funds. Until now, the state has received only $13 million -- about 10 percent of the total.
The conference at the Indiana Convention Center began Monday and runs through Thursday. It's held every two years.
