Reallotment of FY 2011 Funds for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
In accordance with 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, a notice was published in the Federal Register on August 14, 2012 announcing the Secretary's preliminary determination that $3,089,920 of Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 funds may be available for re-allotment. After a 30-day comment period, this amount has not changed. This notice announces that $3,089,920 was reallotted on September 26, 2012 to FY 2012 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) grantees, who were also grantees in FY 2011. Pursuant to the statute cited above, funds will be reallotted to LIHEAP grantees based upon the normal allocation formula as if the funds had been appropriated for FY 2013.
