Preliminary Data Released for LIHEAP FFY 2015 and 2016

June 7, 2018 - The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Community Services (OCS) and Division of Energy Assistance (DEA) has published preliminary data for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) for Federal Fiscal Years 2015 and 2016 on the LIHEAP Performance Management Website.

In January 2017, OCS announced the launch of the LIHEAP Performance Management Website. This website provides data on LIHEAP recipients, sources and uses of lIHEAP funds, average benefits, and LIHEAP performance measures. The data was made via the LIHEAP Data Warehouse, which provides resources and analytical tools to create customized reports, tables and charts.

OCS has published the preliminary data for FFY 2015 and FFY 2016 to support LIHEAP grantees in using “timely data to manage programs effectively and efficiently.” Pending final data validation and publication in the FFY 2015 and FFY 2016 reports to congress, all data should be considered preliminary. The preliminary data is intended to support effective and efficient program planning and management.
