TRADE AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
The draft abbreviated plan will contain changes to the Washington state detailed plan for the 2003 low-income home energy assistance program (LIHEAP). The 2003 detailed plan describes how the state of Washington, in conjunction with community-based public and private agencies, will provide energy assistance and weatherization services to low-income households. The plan was based on the model plan format provided by the federal Department of Health and Human Services. This format ensures that the statutory requirements are met.
A copy of the 2005 abbreviated plan will be posted no later than May 9, 2004, on the LIHEAP website at www.liheapwa.org - State Plans. The draft plan will also be on CTED's website at http://www.cted.wa.gov/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabid=248&tabindex=55.
Copies of both documents can be mailed to you upon request.
Written requests may be sent to Ms. Leona Malmberg, Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development, Community Services, 906 Columbia Street S.W., P.O. Box 48300, Olympia, WA 98504-8300.
