Critical Commentary

The document here presented gives an overview of the policies and programs that have eventually molded into what we know today as LIHEAP. That said, despite its brevity, the document provides viewers with key dates and events that have led Departments of the Government, such as the Energy Department and, later, the Department of Health and Human Services, to take action for those affected by poverty who could not afford to secure healthy and comfortable living. Together with this brief overview, the document also provides a visual timeline of the events that began pointing attention to energy insecurity all the way to the creation of LIHEAP in 1981. This particular document serves as an interesting and useful resource to embed in an analysis of the program and could also be used simply for its appealing visual. Coupled with scholarly articles, an analysis could also be made of LIHEAP's limitations despite the program addressing many problems faced in preceding initiatives.
