The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released $3.65 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2019 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) block grant funds. Of the total appropriated, $36.9 million has not been allocated to states. It is uncertain whether this amount will be released later or if the secretary of HHS is transferring it to other accounts.
