Final FY 2016 LIHEAP Allocations by State – HHS Cuts Budget by $19.5 Million

The third and final FY 2016 LIHEAP Allocation was released on September 15, 2016. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) distributed an additional $14,429,960 to states, tribes and territories. The remaining $19,473,000 was transferred out of LIHEAP, presumably to help fund the U.S. response to the Zika virus in this country. The transfer reduced the total LIHEAP allocation from $3.39 billion to $3.37 billion.
