The cold weather has many people and families in Kansas looking for help with their heating bills through a program called the Low Income Energy Assistance Program, or LIEAP (LEEP). Michelle Ponce (PAWN-say) is a spokesperson for the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services.
SRS began accepting applications for LIEAP last week. Anyone already receiving SRS benefits should automatically receive and application packet in the mail. Anyone else that might qualify for the program should contact the nearest SRS office. The program is geared toward helping persons with disabilities, the elderly, and families with children who meet eligibility guidelines.
