ACTION: Notice of state median income estimates for FFY 2014. AGENCY: This notice announces to grantees of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) the estimated median income of fourperson households in each state and the District of Columbia for FFY 2014 (October 1, 2013, to September 30, 2014). LIHEAP grantees that choose to base their income eligibility criteria on these state median income (SMI) estimates may adopt these estimates (up to 60 percent) on their date of publication in the Federal Register or on a later date as discussed in the ‘‘Dates’’ section. This enables grantees to implement this notice during the period between the heating and cooling seasons. However, by October 1, 2013, or the beginning of the grantee’s fiscal year, whichever is later, such grantees must adjust their income eligibility criteria so that they are in accord with the FFY 2014 SMI. Sixty percent of SMI provides one of the maximum income criteria that LIHEAP grantees may use in determining a household’s income eligibility for LIHEAP.

Under the provisions of section 2603(11) of Title XXVI of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981, Public Law 97–35, as amended, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the estimated median income of four-person families for each state, the District of Columbia, and the United States for FFY 2014 (October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2014). Section 2605(b)(2)(B)(ii) of this Act provides that 60 percent of the median income of four-person families for each state and the District of Columbia (state median income or SMI), as annually established by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, is one of the income criteria that LIHEAP grantees may use in determining a household’s eligibility for LIHEAP. LIHEAP was last authorized by the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109–58, which was enacted on August 8, 2005. This authorization expired on September 30, 2007, and reauthorization remains pending. The SMI estimates that HHS publishes in this notice are 3-year estimates derived from the American Community Survey (ACS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Department of Commerce (Census Bureau).
