APGA Requests that Members Sign the Open Letter to Congressional Appropriators in Support of FY 2020 LIHEAP Funding
APGA is requesting that Member systems sign on to an Open Letter (copy linked below) to Congressional Appropriations Committees from the National Energy and Utility Affordability Coalition (NEUAC) which requests that Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funding for FY20 be made a priority as they draft the Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Bill (note: APGA has already signed this letter). NEUAC is the result of a 2013 merger between the National Fuel Funds Network (NFFN) and the National Low Income Energy Consortium (NLIEC).
In early FY19 there was an initial release of $3.65 billion in LIHEAP funds. This joint letter requests maintaining or increasing funding for FY20 in light of the continuing need for home heating and cooling assistance. APGA supports a full funding level of $5.1 billion for LIHEAP.
