Title: LIHEAP Quarterly Allocation Estimates.
OMB No.: 0970-0037.
Description: The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Quarterly Allocation Estimates Form-535 is a one-page form that is sent to 50 State grantees and the District of Columbia. It is also sent to Tribal grantees that receive over $1 million annually and who directly administer the LIHEAP Program. Grantees are asked to complete and submit the form in the 4th quarter of each fiscal year. The data collected on the form are the grantee's estimates of obligations that they expect to make each quarter during the upcoming fiscal year. This is the only method used to request anticipated distribution of the grantee's LIHEAP funds for the program year. The information is used to disburse LIHEAP funds in accordance with grantee needs and to develop OMB apportionment requests.
