This tranche represents 90% of funds available under the current short-term spending bill that expires in December.

NPGA will continue to advocate for robust federal support for LIHEAP and support efforts to make the process of obtaining funds less cumbersome for recipients. For more information, please contact NPGA’s Jacob Peterson.
