Dear Colleagues:

The Office of Community Services (OCS), Division of Energy Assistance (DEA) is pleased to announce the release of $3.068 billion of FY 2013 regular block grant funding to LIHEAP grantees.

Funding Released Under the Continuing Resolution

This funding is provided under the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (P.L. 112-175) – or “CR” – and represents roughly 90 percent of the regular block grant funding provided in FY 2012. Please find attached a table detailing the allocations to grantees made by this release. Grantees with completed FY 2013 plans will be sent award letters with their individual allocations.

Each state received the lesser of 90 percent of the annual allocation provided under the CR and the amount the state requested for the first two quarters of FY 2013. A state that requested less than 90 percent of its annual allocation may revise its request for the first or second quarter up to this amount.

We stand ready to help all States as they begin their heating seasons.

Jeannie Chaffin
Director
Office of Community Services
