Help available for home heating
by Wyoming Department of Family Services
September 21, 2009
Home heating help applications are now available online and at many locations throughout the state, according to the Wyoming Department of Family Services. The program called LIEAP ("lee-ap") helps many in Wyoming pay their home heating bill.
To get an application visit your local DFS office or your local senior center later this week or download the application from the DFS Web site today.
Those who qualify for LIEAP also qualify for the Weatherization Assistance Program, which helps make homes more energy efficient. It doesn’t matter if you own or rent your home.
While it’s not too cold outside yet, those days are just around the corner.
DFS offers many other programs to help those struggling to make ends meet. To learn more about getting help with groceries and phone service, visit your local DFS office.
The new application for the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program and Weatherization Program is in the mail, at DFS field offices, online and soon will be found at senior centers. Applications have been mailed to everyone who used LIEAP last year. To get an application or learn more about this home heating help, go to DFS’ homepage, http://dfsweb.state.wy.us and look for the LIEAP and Weatherization for Home Heating link. Paper applications can be requested by calling the LIEAP help line at 1-800-246-4221 or by visiting a local DFS office.
