The LIHEAP Institute
The LIHEAP Institute’s curriculum aids in training the LIHEAP Network in a wide suite of skills through a peer-led web series. The peer-to-peer program is intended to support new LIHEAP staff or LIHEAP staff interested in advancing their careers or learning new roles within their agency. This networking opportunity is for program participants to engage in peer-to-peer conversation on a theme that strengthens the Network. Each session is hosted by a member of the LIHEAP network and is followed with an open group discussion and information sharing session. The web series is open to all participants of the program.

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.
