WYOMING – For low- and fixed-income families, turning up the heat during the cold Wyoming winter months is not always an option. The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) may be able to help and is still accepting applications.
As cold weather and snow remain in the forecast, most Wyoming families will be turning up their thermostats to keep warm. If low-income Wyoming families are wondering how they will heat their homes and get through the remaining winter months, LIEAP is still accepting applications through February 28, 2019.
LIEAP is a federally funded program administered by the Department of Family Services (DFS), which can help low-income families and people on fixed-incomes pay their heating bills during the winter months. LIEAP eligibility may also result in approval to get qualified homes weatherized, which can significantly lower the energy costs and improve the comfort, health and safety of occupants in those homes.
LIEAP applications are available at all local DFS offices and on the DFS Website. Applicants may also call the LIEAP intake office at 1-800-246-4221 to request an application. Applications may also be submitted online.
Applications must be FAX-stamped or emailed with the date of February 28, 2019 or before. Applicants may mail completed applications and supporting documents to P.O. Box 827, Cheyenne, WY 82003. Applications may also be scanned and emailed, or faxed to (307) 778-3943.
For assistance with completing an application, call toll free at 1-800-246-4221.
