LIHEAP Action Day represents the largest gathering of LIHEAP advocates from across the nation. Every spring in conjunction with the Congressional appropriations process, NEUAC members and advocates gather to visit their representatives on Capitol Hill to educate members of Congress and staff about the continued need for LIHEAP funding and its positive impact on recipients. The 2017 LIHEAP Action Day is scheduled for February 15th.
For 29 years, our annual conference has been the nation’s leading annual meeting of energy assistance leaders. Six hundred leaders within the energy assistance community gather each June to take advantage of training and education opportunities as well as to share solutions, common challenges, and to celebrate our successes in helping low-income consumers meet their home energy needs.
Utility assistance needs are year-round. Our advocacy efforts should be as well. During the summer Congressional recess we energize our network of advocates around the country to visit House and Senate members in their home districts and bring along constituents who also are LIHEAP recipients and agencies doing grassroots work in energy assistance.
