Title: Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Carryover and Reallotment Report.
OMB No.: 0970-0106.
Description: The LIHEAP statute and regulations require LIHEAP grantees to report certain information to HHS concerning funds forwarded and funds subject to reallotment. The 1994 reauthorization of the LIHEAP statute, the Human Service Amendments of 1994 (Pub. L. 103-252), requires that the carryover and reallotment report for one fiscal year be submitted to HHS by the grantee before the Allotment for the next fiscal year may be awarded.
We are requesting changes in the collection of data by adding a form, the Carryover and Reallotment Report For FY 20__, for the collection of data previously requested by the Simplified Instructions for Timely Obligations of FY 20__ LIHEAP Funds and Reporting Funds for Carryover and Reallotment. The addition of the form will clarify the information being requested and ensure the submission of all the required information. Use of the form will be voluntary. It is being added in response to numerous queries each year concerning how to provide information. It will not add any additional burden on grantees. Grantees would have the option to use another format.
Respondents: State, Local or Tribal Govt.
|Instrument||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden hours per response||Total burden hours|

|Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours:||531|
