Self Sufficiency

While LIHEAP was established to help pay home energy costs for low-income households and provide energy efficiency measures, historically grantees have attempted to expand that role by providing services that help clients attain energy self-sufficiency, thereby reducing dependency on LIHEAP. These services, often conducted in coordination with energy vendors or other low-income programs, have included energy-efficiency education and energy case management. The 1990 reauthorization of LIHEAP included two new provisions, Assurance 16, which provides funding to assist grantees in helping clients attain energy self-sufficiency, and The Residential Energy Assistance Challenge Program (REACH).
