LIHEAP/HS/WIOA/WAP Crosswalk– The LIHEAP/WIOA/WAP/HS crosswalk is a technical assistance tool for the CSBG network to use when considering where or how to report indicators, services, or strategies for these four specific federal programs in the new CSBG Annual Report. It is understood that not all agencies have the same data collection and reporting capabilities and that there is discretion in selecting indicators to report for the CSBG network. As such, this crosswalk is a suggestion of where to report these programs. It is also understood that not only these programs can be reported in any of the listed indicators and that other programs may use the same indicators. Agencies should work with their state offices to answer specific reporting questions and should check with their state office before deciding where or where not to report specific programs.
