With the enactment of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 (P.L. 113-76) the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has announced the release of an additional $454 million in Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funds on January 30.
Previously HHS had released $2.9 billion in LIHEAP funding, in November, while awaiting action on the final Fiscal Year 2014 appropriations.
LIHEAP is a federal block grant program that helps low-income households pay their heating bills in the winter and cooling bills in the summer.
