Dear State and Territory Grantees:

As you know, the Federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) regulations at 45 C.F.R. § 96.49 require that all grantees ensure that their annual LIHEAP plans are complete no later than December 15.  We thank all of you for cooperating with our office for requests for information and clarifications about your Plans to ensure they were complete before December 15. 

We are still waiting to receive a few new State-Tribal agreements for FY 2013.  The agreements are the basis upon which we determine the allocations for the Tribal grantees that we directly fund.  We ask that these agreements be sent to us as early as possible each fiscal year so that we can avoid delays in funding our Tribal grantees.  If you anticipate or run into a delay, please contact our office to keep us informed about the timeframe within which we can expect to receive a copy of the agreement.

We appreciate your timely communications with our office.  Please contact your OCS liaison at anytime during this program year if you have any questions about running your LIHEAP program.  A full listing of our liaison staff and their contact information is available at:  http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/ocs/resource/division-of-energy-assis...

Happy holidays,

The Division of Energy Assistance
