LIHEAP Action Day
NEUAC’s LIHEAP Action Day fly-in event connects advocates from all across the country with policymakers on Capitol Hill to communicate the importance of the LIHEAP program. Our multi-day event provides advocacy training, policy discussion, networking, and meeting scheduling.
LIHEAP Action Day 2022 was held virtually on February 23, 2022 and brought together over 300 attendees to meet with more than 200 congressional offices. LIHEAP Action Day 2023 will convene in person in Washington, DC on February 15-16, 2023. Stay tuned for information on how to register! No advocacy experience is necessary; NEUAC provides training to prepare advocates on how to most effectively share their message.
NEUAC Annual Conference
For more than 30 years, the NEUAC Annual Conference has been the nation’s leading annual meeting of utility assistance professionals in the nonprofit, government, tribal, and utility sectors. Attendees access training and education opportunities as well as share solutions, discuss common challenges, and celebrate our successes in helping low-income consumers meet their home energy and water needs. Topics include:
- Responding to crisis during times of crisis, and addressing the growing need for energy affordability
- Vulnerable populations and energy insecurity
- Energy efficiency, renewables, weatherization, and water affordability
- Compelling change through advocacy, policy, and education
- Partnerships between utilities and nonprofit organizations
- Energy justice and equity, and more!
In 2022, over 750 leaders within the energy and water assistance community gathered in New Orleans. In 2023, we look forward to seeing you in sunny San Diego! Save the date: The 2023 NEUAC Annual Conference meets June 13-15, 2023 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina.
LIHEAP Action Month
Utility assistance needs are year-round. Our advocacy efforts should be as well. During the summer congressional recess, we energize our network of advocates to visit U.S. House and Senate members in their home districts – bringing along constituents who also are LIHEAP recipients as well as agencies doing grassroots work in energy assistance. Advocates make use of NEUAC’s advocacy resources.
