Using the Data Warehouse
The Data Warehouse contains data reported by grantees and developed by the Office of Community Services since 2001. The Data Warehouse has four different options for accessing data:
- The Grantee Profiles tool allows you to access 1-page profiles for each LIHEAP state grantee, compiled using annual LIHEAP data.
- 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.

Why can I see more years of data for my state than other states?
The Data Warehouse contains data reported by grantees and developed by the Office of Community Services since 2001. However, state data is not available to all users until the data are approved for public release. Prior to public release, LIHEAP Grantee users are able to access their own preliminary state data and will not be able to access data for other states.
Why isn’t there any Tribal or Territory data?
Currently, the Data Warehouse contains data reported by State LIHEAP grantees and developed by the Office of Community Services for each State and the District of Columbia. It is anticipated that Tribe and Territory grantee data will be added at a later date. However, all grantees (including Tribes and Territories) are encouraged to access and utilize the Performance Management website for information, resources, and learning.
