State Median Income Estimates for a Four-Person Household: Notice of the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2014 State Median Income Estimates for Use Under the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
This notice announces to grantees of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) the estimated median income of four- person households in each state and the District of Columbia for FFY 2014 (October 1, 2013, to September 30, 2014). LIHEAP grantees that choose to base their income eligibility criteria on these state median income (SMI) estimates may adopt these estimates (up to 60 percent) on their date of publication in the Federal Register or on a later date as discussed in the ``Dates'' section. This enables grantees to implement this notice during the period between the heating and cooling seasons. However, by October 1, 2013, or the beginning of the grantee's fiscal year, whichever is later, such grantees must adjust their income eligibility criteria so that they are in accord with the FFY 2014 SMI. Sixty percent of SMI provides one of the maximum income criteria that LIHEAP grantees may use in determining a household's income eligibility for LIHEAP.
