HHS Releases $3 Billion for Energy Assistance

November 9 -- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is releasing $3.068 billion of FY 2013 regular block grant funding to LIHEAP grantees. Tribes will receive about $35 million of the released funds and $4.2 million will be available to territories.

This funding is provided under the Continuing Appropriations Act or CR and represents about 90 percent of the regular block grant funding provided in FY 2012. Each state will receive the lesser of 90 percent of the annual allocation provided under the CR or the amount the state requested for the first two quarters of FY 2013. A state that requested less than 90 percent of its annual allocation may revise its request for the first or second quarter up to this amount.
