SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Description: The purpose of this information collection is to 
provide data that will allow OCS to identify LIHEAP recipients that 
respond to the upcoming Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS), 
which The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is planning to 
conduct in 2020. The EIA conducts the RECS survey to provide periodic 
national and regional data on residential energy use in the United 
States. OCS uses RECS data to furnish Congress and the Administration 
for Children and Families (ACF) with important national and regional 
descriptive data on the energy needs of low-income households.
    In 2015, state LIHEAP grantees provided household-level recipient

collection of this data is authorized by the LIHEAP statute, which 
requires the Secretary, following consultation with the Secretary of 
Energy, to provide for the collection of specific information on the 
characteristics of LIHEAP recipient and LIHEAP eligible households 
within each State. This includes collecting information that is 
reasonably necessary to carry out the provisions of the LIHEAP statute 
if that information is not collected by any other agency of the Federal 
Government.
