SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with section 2607(b)(1) of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Act (the Act), Title XXVI of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981 (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(1)), as amended, ACF published a notice in the Federal Register on June 29, 2015, announcing the preliminary determination of the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services that $4,352,881 of FY 2014 funds for LIHEAP may be available for reallotment. No comments were received on this notice, nor did any grantees report additional funds for reallotment. However, after such publication, ACF discovered that $28,459 of these funds had already been drawn down from the ACF Payment Management System and would not be available for reallotment. Thus, a final total of $4,324,422 was available for reallotment from FY 2014.

These funds became available from the following grantees in the following amounts:

Reallotment Amounts of FFY 2014 LIHEAP Funds

Grantee nameFY 2014 Reallotment amount

Five Sandoval Indian Pueblos, INC.13,243
Kodiak Area Native Association1,070
West Virginia4,289,352
Total4,324,422

Pursuant to the statute cited, these funds were reallotted on September 30, 2015, to all current LIHEAP grantees by distributing them under the formula Congress set for FY 2015 funding. The only exception is that grantees whose allocations would have been less than $25 did not receive an award.

The reallotted funds may be used for any purpose authorized under LIHEAP. Grantees must add these funds to their total LIHEAP funds payable for FY 2015 for purposes of calculating statutory caps on administrative costs, carryover, assurance 16 activities, and weatherization assistance.
