  1. 1. FY 2015 HEAP Training Conference An Analysis of Key Findings from the FY 2013 LIHEAP Report Ludwik J. Kozlowski, Jr. Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association, Inc. (ACAAA) 300 S. Spring Street, Suite 1020 Little Rock, AR 72201 Ph.: (501)-372-0807 Fax: (501)-372-0891 lkozlowski@acaaa.org
  2. 2. Meet Lud  Graduate of University of Arkansas at Little Rock  BA Radio/TV/Film, 1999  MA Interpersonal and Organizational Communication  ACAAA Energy Policy Coordinator  Leverage resources to educate and make the case for additional funds for LIHEAP and Weatherization  Coordinate with CADC, consultants, and ACAAA Executive Director on the Implementation of the Arkansas Weatherization Program  Write analysis reports on yearly LIHEAP program and Arkansas Weatherization Program production which are shared with key stakeholders, officials, etc.
  3. 3. Annual LIHEAP Survey Report  LIHEAP Survey  Yearly report on LIHEAP expenditures per agency in winter and summer programs (regular and crisis)  Report distributed to advocates, Congressional staff members, utilities, State, etc.  Report points out trends over past few fiscal years and key takeaways regarding LIHEAP in Arkansas  Provides statistical analysis of expenditures paid out by Congressional District, down to the county level
  4. 4. Annual LIHEAP Survey Report  Benefits of LIHEAP Survey  Shows need for LIHEAP in Arkansas  Show use of LIHEAP dollars by Congressional District  Shows importance of LIHEAP to utilities  Strengthens argument for additional funding resources not just in LIHEAP but also weatherization
  5. 5. Key FY 2013 LIHEAP Findings  In FY 2013, $20,227,806.52 was the amount paid out in utility assistance. This was 17% less than the amount available in FY 2012 and 35% below FY 2011.  FY 2013’s reduction in funding resulted in 40% of the state not having a Summer Crisis program in FY 2013. FY 2013 was the first year in several where not every agency had a Summer Crisis program.
  6. 6. Key FY 2013 LIHEAP Findings  Nearly 1/3 of clients (31%) received assistance during the Summer Cooling program in FY 2013. This is down from over 41% who received assistance during FY 2012.  Five percent fewer total winter applicants were served during FY 2013 when compared to FY 2012  38% fewer total summer applicants were served during FY 2013 when compared to FY 2012. When comparing FY 2013 to FY 2011, that percentage is down 56%.
  7. 7. Key FY 2013 LIHEAP Findings  Overall the number of applicants served was 20% less than in FY 2012. When comparing FY 2013 to FY 2011, the percentage is down 30%  Two Congressional Districts (1st and 4th) received most of the LIHEAP payments and had most of the LIHEAP applicants served. These two Congressional Districts have the highest aggregate poverty rates
  8. 8. LIHEAP Funds Paid Out FY 2011 – FY 2013 LIHEAP TOTAL FUNDS PAID OUT FY $31,210,359.13 2011 - FY 2013 $24,247,741.07 $20,230,109.52 FY 2011 FY 2012 FY 2013

  17. 17. Points to Remember  LIHEAP is a First Come, First Served Program  There are not enough funds to help everyone  Arkansas is considered a warm weather state. LIHEAP’s formula has favored cold weather states over the years.  Funding cuts are resulting in fewer applicants receiving assistance for summer crisis. There were 89% fewer summer crisis applicants served in FY 2013 when compared to FY 2012
  18. 18. Recognition of LIHEAP Survey from Key Advocates  Meg Power NCAF/Opportunitystudies.org on the Report:  “This is brilliantly done and should be very very useful. Please find a way to link it to your website, and I will direct the rest of the world to emulate it…especially the tables showing payout by utility and type. I KNOW how hard this must have been to assemble! With continued admiration! Meg.”
  19. 19. Recognition of LIHEAP Survey from Key Advocates  From Ed Rissing, Principal Rissing Strategic, LLC - “I’m overdue to thank you for the truly outstanding work y’all did on profiling LIHEAP’s significance to the State, and to your representatives in Congress…I know of no finer example of such work, either in summary or in the fine detail, than the unique document you've produced… It’s so good, that we’ve used it on Capitol Hill, borrowed liberally from it, and actually shown it to administrators in other states and urged them to emulate it…Kudos to you and to the staff who have set a new standard!...” - Email sent to ACAAA July 12, 2013 
  20. 20. FY 2014 Initial Findings  The total amount expended in FY 2014 was $20,278,616.60, which is over $50,000 more than the amount expended in FY 2013  FY 2014’s expenditure though is down 35% from the FY 2011 total of $31,210,359.13  43% of the total applicants received assistance during the summer cooling program in FY 2014. This is up from 31% of total applicants who received summer cooling assistance in FY 2013
  21. 21. FY 2014 Initial Findings  The total number of summer applicants served in FY 2014 was up 28% over FY 2013  57 counties were able to operate a summer crisis cooling program in FY 2014 compared to just 30 counties in FY 2013  3% more applicants were served in FY 2014 when compared to FY 2013  The 1st and 4th Congressional Districts continued receiving the majority of LIHEAP payments and serving the most applicants
  22. 22. NOTE  In FY 2014 the maximum amount for crisis assistance was lowered to $500 from the previous maximum of $700  The lowered amount probably accounts for the increase in counties operating a Summer Crisis program as well as the number of applicants served over FY 2013
  23. 23. FY 2014 Report Status  Finished first draft of FY 2014 report  Report should be finalized with more detailed findings by the end of the year  Will be sent out to key stakeholders and posted on the ACAAA website
