The department of community, trade and economic development (CTED) will be publishing a draft of the low income home energy assistance program (LIHEAP) abbreviated model plan - fiscal year 2007.

The 2007 abbreviated plan will describe 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 will be 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 2007 abbreviated plan will be posted no later than May 22, 2005, on the LIHEAP web site at www.liheapwa.org - State plans and on the CTED web site at www.cted.wa.gov - Publications. The public hearing will be held at the Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development, 906 Columbia Street S.W., Second Floor Conference Room, on Monday, June 26, from 10-12.

Copies of both documents can be mailed to you upon request.

Written requests may be sent to Ms. Lisa Lipsey, Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development, Community Services, 906 Columbia Street S.W., P.O. Box 42525, Olympia, WA 98504-2525.
