Funded through the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, the LIEAP program assists low-income individuals and families with the cost of heating their homes during the winter months. The program is administered through the Wyoming Department of Family Services.

Wyoming has already weathered one cold snap with another expected later this week. And, many weather forecasting organizations have predicted a snowier than normal and colder than normal winter for the intermountain and high plains regions of the United States. Wyoming falls within both of those regions. LIEAP assistance can help get eligible Wyoming families safely and warmly through those extreme winter temperatures.


“LIEAP assistance is very important to senior citizens on fixed incomes and low-income families who might otherwise be forced to choose between paying for other essential items such as food, rent, or prescription medications and paying for heating costs. LIEAP is here to help ensure that no family is forced to suffer through winter without heat” said, Brenda Ilg, LIEAP Program Manager, DFS.

LIEAP eligibility is based on household size, gross (before taxes) household income, and type of fuel used to heat the home. Completed applications and supporting documents may be mailed to the LIEAP office at P.O. Box 827, Cheyenne, WY 82003; or FAXED to 307-778-3943; or scanned and emailed to  The application period runs from October 1, 2013 through February 28, 2014.
