LIHEAP Funds by Program Component

NOTE: The LIHEAP statute authorizes states to provide assistance to low-income households in meeting their home energy costs, intervene in energy crisis situations, and provide low-cost residential weatherization and other cost-effective energy-related home repair (up to 15 percent or 25 percent of the grant if a waiver is approved); it also allows states to spend no more than 10 percent of their grant for administrative purposes. Grantees are also allowed to carryover up to 10 percent of their grant to the next fiscal year. Beyond that, states decide what percent of their funds go to each program component and have the option to use up to 5 percent of funds for Assurance 16 activities. In some cases, state legislatures have mandated component expenditures. For example, state statutes in California, Pennsylvania and Virginia mandate the amount of the weatherization set aside from LIHEAP funds.
