SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The Low Income Home Energy 
Assistance Program (LIHEAP) block grant (42 U.S.C. 8621 et seq.) was 
established under Title XXVI of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act 
of 1981, Public Law 97-35, as amended. The Office of Community Services 
(OCS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), within the U.S. 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), administers LIHEAP at

program goals, as articulated in the statute, are to ensure that 
benefits are targeted to those households where the greatest program 
impacts are expected, and to assure that timely resources are available 
to households experiencing home energy crises.
    OCS is seeking a reinstatement without change to collect data from 
all state LIHEAP grantees and the District of Columbia that will allow 
OCS to identify LIHEAP recipients that respond to the Residential 
Energy Consumption Survey (RECS), which the U.S. Energy Information
