Objectives: The objective of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is to make grants available to States, the District of Columbia, US Territories, and Native American Tribes and tribal organizations for the purpose of assisting eligible households to meet the costs of home energy. Supplemental Leveraging Incentive funds may be awarded to reward States that provide additional benefits and services to LIHEAP-eligible households beyond what could be provided with Federal funds. A portion of the leveraging incentive funds may be set aside by HHS for LIHEAP recipients to provide services through local administrating agencies to help LIHEAP-eligible households reduce their energy vulnerability under the Residential Energy Assistance Challenge Program (REACH). Training and Technical Assistance funds are authorized to conduct federal monitoring and provide training and technical assistance to recipients administering the LIHEAP block grant.
