The Home Energy Assistance Program in Kansas provides financial assistance to approximately 60,000 households each year to help them meet the costs of home energy i.e. gas, electricity, propane, etc.  It also offers weatherization services and case management activities which are designed to encourage and enable households to reduce their energy costs and thereby, their need for financial assistance.

The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (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.
