    The LIHEAP Data Warehouse contains data reported by grantees and developed by the Office of Community Services (OCS) since 2001. The Data Warehouse has four different options for accessing data:
    • The Grantee Profiles (2014) tool allows you to access 1-page profiles for each LIHEAP state grantee, compiled using the Data that OCS published in the 2014 LIHEAP Report to Congress.
    • The Guided Search tool provides you with step-by-step guidance in accessing LIHEAP data and creating data reports, tables, and graphs. This tool contains information on national, regional, and state level LIHEAP program statistics.
    • The Advanced Data & Analytics tool allows you to develop and download more complex tables and graphics using LIHEAP program data reported by grantees and other data on low-income households made available by OCS.
    • The Reports by Data Source tool allows you to create standard tables and charts by selecting a specific data source, including reports submitted by LIHEAP Grantees and data made available by OCS.

  • What's New?

    What's New in November 2017
    • APPRISE will be conducting two training webinars for completing the FY 2017 Household Report, which must be submitted in OLDC by December 15th, 2017.
      • November 15th - Webinar #1: Step-By-Step Overview of the FY 2017 Household Report. This webinar will provide detailed instructions and guidance for successfully completing each reporting item in the FY 2017 Household Report. The webinar will last for approximately 90 minutes and will provide a comprehensive overview intended for new LIHEAP Coordinators, IT staff that assist with generating report data, and other staff that assist with reporting.
      • November 29th - Webinar #2: Common Issues and Reminders for Completing the FY 2017 Household Report. This webinar will discuss common reporting issues that are found when reviewing state's submitted Household Reports, and it will serve as a refresher of the main reporting requirements and nuances. The webinar will last for approximately 30 minutes and is intended for all LIHEAP coordinators and relevant staff that assist with reporting.
    • APPRISE has developed new "Check Before You Submit" documents to assist grantees with reviewing their Household Report, Performance Data Form Module 1 (Grantee Survey), and Performance Data Form Module 2 (Performance Measures) for potential issues prior to submitting their reports in OLDC. These documents will help grantees to proactively identify and correct any reporting issues before submission, and use of these documents will assist grantees by reducing follow-up from APPRISE and the need to substantially revise reports after submission.
    What's New in October 2017
    • FY 2018 Model Plans were due on October 4th.
    • The new fiscal year - FY 2018 - began. For upcoming grantee reporting on their program during FY 2017, APPRISE began developing new resources to help grantees check their data prior to submission and OCS review. Each grantee will also be contacted with a reminder of review findings from their FY 2016 reports to help them check and preemptively resolve any issues prior to submitting their FY 2017 reports.
    • The PMIWG Process Team continued developing a new "Executive Summary" to accompany each state grantee's LIHEAP Performance Measures State Snapshot. The purpose is to provide context and information and to help grantees understand and easily share their State Snapshot charts and information with program partners, including subgrantees, vendors, and other stakeholders.
    • Each state grantee can now view and use their final submitted FY 2016 reporting data in the Data Warehouse. This includes grantees' FY 2016 Household Report and Grantee Survey information, as well as data on the estimated income-eligible population. Since the FY 2016 data are not yet public, each state grantee can only access their own state's FY 2016 data, but the data can be analyzed with historic data using the Data Warehouse chart and table tools.
    What's New in September 2017
    • Grantees recently submitted their FY 2017 Carryover & Reallotment Report and their preliminary FY 2017 Household Report. APPRISE began reviewing grantee's submissions and providing technical assistance as needed.
    What's New in August 2017
    • The LIHEAP Data Help Desk was available to help LIHEAP grantees with using the LIHEAP Data Warehouse and Performance Measures data in developing FY 2018 Model LIHEAP Plans and working to integrate data into program planning. To submit a question or contact the Help Desk, log in and click here.
    • The Grantee Forum facilitated discussion and information sharing among LIHEAP grantees. The forum can be accessed here after logging in by clicking here.
