OAR 813-200-0010

(1) OHCS may contract with subgrantees to provide eligible program services (see OAR 813-200-0030 (Use of Funds)) in service areas in such manner to provide holistic coverage statewide without duplication or overlap of services. In a service area where a Community Action Agency (CAA) exists, the CAA has the conditional right of first refusal to serve as the subgrantee for the given service area.
(2) OHCS will allocate LIHEAP funds to all subgrantees through a formula established by OHCS prior to the allocation process. OHCS reserves the right to modify such formula at any time in its sole discretion.
(3) A subgrantee may establish subrecipients that meet the requirements of ORS 458.505 (Community action agency network as delivery system for federal antipoverty programs)(4) to provide eligible program services in the subgrantee’s service area.
(4) Subgrantees shall, at a minimum, identify potential eligible households, collect and screen applications, verify household eligibility, and contract with and monitor local home energy suppliers to determine that the eligible households are receiving their awarded program services. Whenever appropriate, subgrantees may assist eligible households in accessing other services designed to stabilize housing.
(5) Subgrantee representatives must attend and participate in LIHEAP-related training made available or conducted by OHCS.
(6) A designated portion of LIHEAP funds are reserved for subgrantees and their subrecipients to use for administrative costs. Subgrantees and their subrecipients may expend up to a determined amount as authorized by OHCS and outlined in the funding agreement.
