Title: Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Grantee Survey.

Description: The LIHEAP Grantee Survey is an annual data collection activity, which is sent to the 50 States and the District of Columbia grantees administering the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). The survey is mandatory in order that national estimates of the sources and uses of LIHEAP funds can be calculated in a timely manner; a range can be calculated of state average LIHEAP benefits; and maximum income cutoffs for 4-person households can be obtained for estimating the number of low-income households that are income eligible for LIHEAP under State income standards.

Respondents: 50 States and the District of Columbia.

Annual Burden Estimates:

The information also is included in the Department's annual LIHEAP Report to Congress. Survey information also will be posted on Office of Community Services LIHEAP web site for access by grantees and other interested parties.
