LIEAP Season Program adjustments
acknowledgement of the impact of the February 2021 cold snap and the
resulting higher than normal utility bills that Kansas families are
experiencing, the following changes are being made to the 2021 LIEAP
- The application
period is extended from March 31, 2021 to May 28, 2021.
- The income
guidelines for the 2021 LIEAP Program season will be based off of 150% of
the Federal Poverty Level. A retroactive review of cases denied as “over
income” will be conducted to identify those cases that meet the new income
guidelines and those identified cases will be reprocessed for eligibility
based on the new income guidelines.
