Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund

Governor Scott Walker announced an additional $500,000 has been released from the Department of Administration’s Division of Energy Services to the Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund (KWWF).  KWWF is a statewide, non-profit charitable organization that provides energy-related crisis assistance.  The state funding comes from Wisconsin’s federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).  By law, the State must use LIHEAP funds to assist citizens at or below 60 percent of the state median income.  For a family of four, 60 percent of the state median income is $47,485. The additional state funding directed to KWWF for resident’s meeting the federal low-income eligibility requirements will allow KWWF to redeploy existing private contributions to help citizens between 61 and 80 percent of state median income who do not qualify for traditional low-income energy assistance.   Previously, the state released $1 million to KWWF in January to ensure as many people as possible can be assisted during the propane shortage.  The Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund has agreed to temporarily allow an increase in their income limit for propane households from 61 percent of State Median Income (SMI) to 80 percent SMI, will allow propane households to potentially receive an increased maximum benefit of $600, and has temporarily adjusted their policy to allow propane households the ability to potentially receive two benefit payments in a year.  Through KWWF, over $750,000 has already been distributed to citizens between the 60-80 percent range.
