The LIHEAP Institute
The LIHEAP Institute’s curriculum, developed with partners across the country, will aid in training the LIHEAP Network in a wide suite of skills over the 4-month program. This program is intended to support new LIHEAP staff or LIHEAP staff interested in advancing their careers or learning new roles within their agency. The webinar-based monthly seminars will be facilitated by a peer mentor and are open to all participants of the program. Each month focuses on a theme that strengthens the Network in a wide-range of relevant topics.
The LIHEAP Institute webinars are held at 1PM (EST) on the last Thursday of each month in January, February, March and April of 2018. Webinars will be recorded and available.

The Mentoring Connection
The mentoring connection is intended to serve as a robust way to connect LIHEAP grantees who are interested in refining or creating new policies, procedures, or initiatives with mentors who have successfully implemented a similar policy, procedure, or initiative. This tier of the program will foster relationships between grantees on an as-needed basis and can range in time commitment from a few phone calls, to months of providing guidance, trouble-shooting, and mentorship.
The Clearinghouse will provide orientation to mentors and mentees through a one-hour training webinar at the onset of joining the program. The orientation is a required prerequisite to activities of the Mentoring Connection and are designed to outline and agree upon expectations, objectives, activities, and ensure that program participants are able to ask questions about the program before making a commitment.
The Grantee Forum
The Grantee Forum is an online forum that enables state, tribal, and territorial grantees to share program knowledge with one another in an informal manner and on topic-specific needs. This is a tool that can be utilized across the Network and without the need for a significant time commitment.
The LIHEAP Grantee Forum is only available to registered users of the LIHEAPPM website.
Users must be logged in to utilize it.
