SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  It has been determined that $536,595 in 
LIHEAP funds may be available for reallotment during FY 2018. This 
determination is based on FY 2017 Carryover and Reallotment Reports 
which showed that fifteen grantees reported reallotment funds. These 
grantees were State of Alaska, Aniak Traditional Council, Association 
of Village Council Presidents, Bristol Bay Native Association, Colorado

Kalispel Tribe of Indians, Little River Band of Ottawa Indians, Miami 
Tribe of Oklahoma, Navajo Nation, Sac and Fox Nation of Oklahoma,

Berry Creek Rancheria. Grantees submitted the FY 2017 Carryover and 
Reallotment Reports to the OCS, as required by regulations applicable 
to LIHEAP at 45 CFR 96.81(b).
    The LIHEAP 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 
full-year 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 (42 U.S.C. 8626(b)(1)). The amount 
described in this notice was reported by grantees as unobligated FY 
2017 funds in excess of the amount that these grantees could carry over 
to FY 2018.
    In accordance with section 2607(b)(3) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 
8626(b)(3)), comments will be accepted for a period of 30 days from the 
date of publication of this notice.
    After considering any comments submitted, all current LIHEAP 
grantees will be notified of the final reallotment amount redistributed 
to them for obligation in FY 2018. This decision will be published in a 
Dear Colleague Letter that gets posted to ACF's website.
    If funds are reallotted, they will be allocated in accordance with 
section 2604 of the Act (42 U.S.C. 8623) and must be treated by LIHEAP 
grantees receiving them as an amount appropriated for FY 2018. As FY 
2018 funds, they will be subject to all requirements of the Act, 
including section 2607(b)(2) (42 U.S.C. 8626(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, 2018.
