Title: Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Leveraging Report.
OMB No.: 0970-0121.
Description: The LIHEAP leveraging incentive program rewards LIHEAP grantees that have leveraged nonfederal home energy resources for low income households. The LIHEAP leveraging report is the application for leveraging incentive funds that these LIHEAP grantees submit to HHS for each fiscal year in which they leverage countable resources. Participation in the leveraging incentive program is voluntary. The Leveraging report obtains information on the resources leveraged by LIHEAP grantees each fiscal year (as cash, discounts, waivers, and in-kind); the benefits provided to low income households by these resources (for example, as fuel and payments for fuel, as home heating and cooling equipment, and is weatherization materials and installation); and the fair market value of these resource/benefits. HHS needs this information in order to carry out statutory requirements for administering the LIHEAP leveraging incentive program, to determine countability and valuation of grantees' leveraged nonfederal home energy resources, and to determine grantees' shares of leveraging incentive funds. HHS proposes to request a 3-year extension of OMB approval for the currently approved LIHEAP leveraging report information collection.
Respondents: State and Tribal Governments.

|Instrument||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden hours per response||Total burden hours|
