NEADA today sent a letter to Secretary Sebelius requesting that FY 2014 LIHEAP funds be released as soon as possible to allow states to get their programs up and running. Many states have indicated that they cannot start their programs until they receive official notification from HHS, and others are operating on carryover funds that are quickly running out. We have also heard from states where winter has already started, even states are far south as Maryland, which has already experienced early snow conditions. Mark Wolfe/NEADA
