Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) Now Open in State of Kansas

(KANSAS CITY, Kan.) — The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP), a Federally funded program that helps eligible households pay a portion of their home energy costs by providing a one-time per year benefit, is currently available for eligible Kansans. Persons with disabilities, older adults and families with children are the primary groups who are assisted.

The program is managed and administered by the State of Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF), with the 2023 application open from January 3, 2023 through March 31, 2023. To qualify, applicants must be responsible for direct payment of their heating bills, with income eligibility requirements set at 150% of the federal poverty level, among other things.

To learn more about eligibility requirements, find additional information, or complete a LIEAP application, interested parties should go to the State of Kansas DCF website or call the State of Kansas DCF offices directly at 1-800-432-0043.

Funding for the LIEAP is provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Community Service through the Federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
