10 CFR 440.10 - Allocation of funds.
(1) Allocate to each State a “Base Allocation” as listed in Table 1.
Base Allocation Table
|District of Columbia||487,000|
|Northern Mariana Islands||120,000|
(2) Subtract 171,258,000 from total program allocations.
(ii) Divide the number of “Heating Degree Days” for each State by the median “Heating Degree Days” for all States.
(iii) Divide the number of “Cooling Degree Days” for each State by the median “Cooling Degree Days” for all States, then multiply by 0.1.
(iv) Calculate the sum of the two numbers from paragraph (b)(3)(ii) and (iii) of this section.
(x) Multiply the results for paragraph (b)(3)(i), (iv) and (ix) of this section for each State.
(c) Should total program allocations for any fiscal year fall below $209,724,761, then each State's program allocation shall be reduced from its allocated amount under a total program allocation of $209,724,761 by the same percentage as total program allocations for the fiscal year fall below $209,724,761.
(d) All data sources used in the development of the formula are publicly available. The relevant data is available from the Bureau of the Census, the Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
(e) Should updates to the data used in the formula become available in any fiscal year, these changes would be implemented in the formula in the following program year.
(f) DOE may reduce the program allocation for a State by the amount DOE determines cannot be reasonably expended by a grantee to weatherize dwelling units during the budget period for which financial assistance is to be awarded. In reaching this determination, DOE will consider the amount of unexpended financial assistance currently available to a grantee under this part and the number of dwelling units which remains to be weatherized with the unexpended financial assistance.
(g) DOE may increase the program allocation of a State by the amount DOE determines the grantee can expend to weatherize additional dwelling units during the budget period for which financial assistance is to be awarded.
