The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) is administered by the Wyoming Department of Family Services (DFS). The program is funded by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and the State of Wyoming General Fund. Program benefits are determined by a household income based on 215% of the federal poverty guideline, the number of people in a household and the primary heating source.

The Program has three components:

    1. Provide financial assistance to a household to offset the cost of home heating.
    2. Energy Crisis Intervention Program (CRISIS) which helps with deposits and potential utility shut-off.
    3. Heating system repair and replacement may be available year round through the Weatherization Assistance Program.

All eligible LIEAP clients are eligible for CRISIS and are referred to the Weatherization Assistance Program for weatherization..

Applications for LIEAP will be processed starting the 1st working day in October through the last working day of February. Applications for CRISIS will be accepted through April 15th. CRISIS is only available to LIEAP eligible clients. Clients applying for LIEAP will be notified within 45 day of the receipt date on the application whether they are eligible or denied for LIEAP. Heating system repair and replacement is only available to LIEAP eligible clients. If you desire these services and have not applied for LIEAP submit an application to see if you are eligible. You are not required to accept LIEAP benefits to receive the services for heating repairs or weatherization. If you are not LIEAP eligible then you are not eligible for heating repairs or weatherization.

If you have received LIEAP services in another state during the same heating season, you are not eligible to receive LIEAP services in Wyoming.
