Kansas Reopens Energy Assistance Fund

Federal Fund Helps Low Income Families Pay Energy Costs – LIEAP Program

The City of Waterville has been informed that Kansas has reopened the Energy Assistance Fund to assist low income families pay energy costs.

Kansas energy customers can apply for LIEAP program funds on the Kansas Department for Children and Families Energy Assistance website.  Applicants will need utility account numbers, proof of income, and social security numbers for all members of their household. 

LIEAP is a federally funded program that helps eligible households pay a portion of their home energy costs by providing a one-time per year benefit.  Typically, LIEAP is available in the fall and winter months, but the coronavirus situation has prompted the Kansas Department for Children and Families to reopen the application window through May 29, 2020.

Normally, LIEAP provides an annual benefit to help qualifying households pay winter heating bills.  Persons with disabilities, older adults, and families with children are the primary groups assisted. 

To qualify, applicants must be responsible for direct payment of their heating bills.  The level of benefit varies according to household income, number of people living in the home, type of residence, type of heating fuel, and utility rates.  Eligibility is based on an applicant’s heating bill.  If an applicant needs assistance covering electric costs, they need to request the benefit be split between the two utilities.

To learn more about the eligibility requirements or fill out a LIEAP application, visit the Kansas Department for Children and Families website or call 1-800-432-0043.  LIEAP applications on the Kansas Department for Children and Families website became available beginning May 1, 2020.

Interested in politics?

Did you know census data is used to reapportion the U.S. House of Representatives–it will determine how many seats the state of Kansas gets (currently we have 4). Furthermore, census data is used to redraw the boundaries of state legislative, local, and school districts, adapting to changes in population.

In terms of politics, taking the census is just as important as voting–both a civic duty of each resident. Learn more today at kansascounts.org. #KansasCounts #2020Census
