C. State Fiscal Data


This Appendix includes State-specific data on the following sources of LIHEAP funds that were available for obligation in FY 2006 (see table C-1, Appendix C):

•      State net allotments of the regular LIHEAP block funds and emergency contingency funds for FY 2006;

•      LIHEAP carryover from FY 2005;

•      unobligated FY 2005 emergency contingency funds;

•      FY 2006 LIHEAP leveraging incentive awards;

•      unobligated FY 2005 LIHEAP leveraging incentive awards;

•      oil overcharge funds obligated for LIHEAP in FY 2006; and

•      FY 2006 REACH funds.


This Appendix also includes State-specific information on the uses of LIHEAP funds, household average benefits, and maximum income cutoffs for four-person households for FY 2006 (see tables C-2 and C-3, Appendix C; table I-3, Appendix I).

The fiscal data were gathered from the State estimates obtained from the LIHEAP Grantee Survey for FY 2006, as described in Appendix A of this Report. Estimates are less burdensome and more timely than reporting actual figures. As estimates, the fiscal data are subject to change. However, the Department has found these estimates to be reasonable guides to actual performance.

The majority of obligated funds are expended during the Federal Fiscal Year. However, remaining obligated funds can be expended in the following fiscal year or later.

Uniform Federal definitions were not imposed on the States. The Department has left States maximum flexibility under the block grant statutes to design and run programs suited to their own assessments of their citizens' needs. For this reason, most of the definitions to be used in the States' administration of their LIHEAP programs are determined by the States. Similarly, no uniform definition of such key terms as "administrative costs" and "low-cost weatherization" were employed in the LIHEAP grantee survey. Some variation in the meaning of State responses must be expected. Thus, comparison of State fiscal estimates should be viewed cautiously.
