Low Income Energy Efficiency Program (LIEEP)
The Low Income Energy Efficiency Program (LIEEP) was part of a suite of measures announced in July 2011 as part of the governments' climate change strategy. LIEEP was a competitive merit-based grant program established by the Australian Government to provide grants to consortia of government, business and community organisations to trial approaches to improve the energy efficiency of low income households and enable them to better manage their energy use.
Across two funding rounds 20 recipients were successful in securing grants worth a total of $55.3 million. The Program closed on 30 June 2016.
