Worker and Family Assistance: Home Energy Assistance for Low-Income Occupants of Manufactured Homes
Frank Rusco (au)
According to the Energy Info. Admin. (EIA), the nationäó»s approx. 130 million housing units account for about 23% of total energy consumption in the U.S. Approx. 2 million of these housing units are manufactured homes (i.e., mobile homes) that were built prior to 1976, when new standards for energy efficient construction became effective. These older manufactured homes are generally considered to have some of the poorest energy efficiency of all housing units. Many of their occupants qualify for federal assistance to help pay their energy bills through the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Servicesäó» (HHS) Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which helps cover home energy expenditures äóî key components of which are home heating and, in some cases, cooling expenditures. To be eligible, household income must be below varying thresholds set by the federal government. In FY 2012, Congress appropriated about $3.5 billion for LIHEAP nationwide. Questions have been raised about whether improving the energy efficiency of older manufactured homes or replacing them with newer, more energy-efficient models would save the federal government money by reducing LIHEAP costs. This report determined (1) the amount occupants of older manufactured homes paid for energy and how it compared with the amount paid by occupants of detached homes; (2) how the amount of LIHEAP assistance occupants of older manufactured homes received and the amount of their energy expenditures this assistance covered compared with such assistance received and expenditures covered for occupants of detached homes; and (3) the proportion of total LIHEAP funding used to assist occupants of older manufactured homes. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
