The Wyoming Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) is taking new applications until Feb. 28, according to the Wyoming Department of Family Services.

LIEAP is a federally funded program designed to help eligible Wyoming residents pay their residential heating bills from November through May.

LIEAP approval may afford eligible homes to get weatherized, which the Department of Family Services says can significantly lower energy costs and improve the comfort, health, and safety of qualified Wyoming homes.

Those interested can apply online or by calling the LIEAP office at 1-800-246-4221. Applications are also available at all local Department of Family Services offices and senior centers.

Applicants are asked to mail completed applications and supporting documents to:
P.O. Box 827, Cheyenne, WY 82003 or fax them to 307-778-3943.
