CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), Bureau for Children and Families is issuing a one-time Emergency Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) supplemental payment of $100 to both LIEAP participants and heating source vendors to offset bulk fuel expenses from the current program year.
This one-payment will take the place of Emergency LIEAP and should be received by the end of May. The payment will be automatic; an application or a termination notice will be not required.  
“This payment is another effort to help West Virginia’s low-income families offset additional costs incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Linda Watts, Commissioner of DHHR’s Bureau for Children and Families. 
For additional information, call DHHR’s Customer Services Hotline: 1-877-716-1212.
