That’s right – it’s time again for LIHEAP Action Day! Hundreds of advocates from across the nation are packing their bags (and their walking shoes!) in preparation for the annual visit to the Nation’s Capitol. Under the auspices of the National Energy and Utilities Affordability Coalition (NEUAC) and other partners, LIHEAP Action Day is one of the most important events in the LIHEAP calendar.
Beyond serving as an opportunity for local advocates to build and strengthen relationships with their local House and Senate delegations, Action Day is an opportunity to honor congressional leadership and spend time as a community of advocates. This year’s highlight includes presentation of the annual Extra Mile award to Representative Paul Tanko on Wednesday, February 27, and the actual Action Day itself, Thursday, February 28. LIHEAP.org’s team will be standing by to cover these events and highlight the latest and greatest on social media. If you would like to lend a hand but are not able to join in Washington, you can connect with NEUAC at www.neuac.org, or, if you are just curious, you can download their updated state fact sheets here.
