Public Comment Sought for Heating and Weatherization Assistance Program

The Wyoming Department of Family Services is requesting Public Comment on a
waiver to the FFY 2017 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 up 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, 1700 Robertson Avenue, Worland, WY, 82401. Copies
may also be requested by email to dfslieap@wyo.gov. Comments are invited to be
submitted in writing to dfslieap@wyo.gov by May 1, 2017.
