To raise awareness regarding available relief funds, Evergy will host a Facebook livestream event on Monday, March 22 at 3 p.m. Representatives from Evergy Customer Affairs will provide valuable insight on eligibility requirements, how a customer can sign up for LIHEAP/LIEAP plus new information regarding rental assistance programs in both states that assist with rent and energy bills.
Kansas is accepting applications for the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) and has recently extended its deadline to sign up until Friday, May 28. In addition, the combined gross income of all persons living at the address has increased to 150% from 130% of the federal poverty level. That means a traditional family of four must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below $39,300. Last year customers received an average of $600 in financial relief.
Missouri is also accepting applications for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) to address financial needs for customers. Low income families can submit applications until 5 p.m., Wednesday, March 31. Last year customers received an average of $300 in financial relief.
Media partners are welcome to share the link of the livestream with their viewers to help spread the word about these important programs. By sharing this event, you can help customers who are struggling financially.
