The Wyoming Department of Family Services is requesting Public Comment on a
waiver to the FFY 2013 Low Income Energy Assistance Plan. The waiver would
increase the percentage of funding to the Weatherization Program for persons of low
income. The waiver would increase the Weatherization funding to twenty-five percent
(25%) instead of the standard allowable fifteen percent (15%). Awarding these Low
Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) funds to the Weatherization Assistance
Program will not reduce the funding available for LIEAP benefits during the upcoming
LIEAP program year.

A copy of the Waiver Request will be furnished upon request. Contact LIEAP,
Department of Family Services, Hathaway Building, Third Floor, Cheyenne, WY, 82002-
0490. Comments are invited to be submitted in writing by May 3, 2013.
