SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given of a preliminary determination that 
funds from the fiscal year (FY) 2013 Low Income Home Energy Assistance 
Program (LIHEAP) are available for reallotment to States, Territories, 
Tribes, and Tribal Organizations that receive FY 2014 direct LIHEAP 
grants. No subgrantees or other entities may apply for these funds. 
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. 8621 et seq.), as amended, requires that if the Secretary of the 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) determines that, as 
of September 1 of any fiscal year, an amount in excess of certain 
levels allotted to a grantee for any fiscal year will not be used by 
the grantee during the fiscal year, the Secretary must notify the 
grantee and publish a notice in the Federal Register that such funds 
may be realloted to LIHEAP grantees during the following fiscal year. 
If reallotted, the LIHEAP block grant allocation formula will be used 
to distribute the funds. (No funds may be allotted to entities that are 
not direct LIHEAP grantees during FY 2014.)
    It has been determined that $2,192,230 may be available for 
reallotment during FY 2014. This determination is based on revised 
Carryover and Reallotment Reports from the State of Nebraska, Salt 
River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, and the Delaware Tribe of 
Indians, which were submitted to the Office of Community Services as 
required by 45 CFR 96.82.
    The statute allows grantees who have funds unobligated at the end 
of the federal fiscal year for which they are awarded to request that 
they be allowed to carry over up to 10 percent of their allotments to 
the next federal fiscal year. Funds in excess of this amount must be 
returned to HHS and are subject to reallotment under section 2607(b)(1) 
of the Act. The amount described in this notice was reported as 
unobligated FY 2013 funds in excess of the amount that the State of 
Nebraska, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, and the Delaware 
Tribe of Indians could carry over to FY 2014.
    Each of the grantees mentioned above were notified and confirmed 
that the FY 2013 funds indicated in the chart below may be reallotted.

Washington, DC 20447.
    After considering any comments submitted, the Chief Executive 
Officers will be notified of the final reallotment amount, and this

reallotted, they will be allocated in accordance with section 2604 of 
the Act and must be treated by LIHEAP grantees receiving them as an 
amount appropriated for FY 2014. As FY 2014 funds, they will be subject 
to all requirements of the Act, including section 2607(b)(2), which 
requires that a grantee obligate at least 90 percent of its total block 
grant allocation for a fiscal year by the end of the fiscal year for 
which the funds are appropriated, that is, by September 30, 2014.
