Ohio receives Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program
(LIHEAP) funding from the federal government to provide assistance to low and
moderate income families to subsidize their home energy expenses. Federal
law permits states to set aside a portion of these federal funds to weatherize
homes of low and moderate income Ohio households so their long-term energy
costs are reduced.
Ohio Partners for Affordable Energy (OPAE), a client, sought
to increase the percentage of federal LIHEAP funds that are used in Ohio for
the weatherization of homes through legislation. The team at Kegler Brown
worked with the client and the client's allies to structure a grassroots campaign and advocacy strategy
that culminated in the funding for weatherization increasing by 33 percent
after 18 months.
