Weatherization


Weatherization Assistance Program

Program Basics

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides energy conservation measures in dwelling units occupied by families at or below 150% of the federal poverty income guidelines as established by the US Office of Management and Budget.  For eligible homeowners and renters, there is no direct cost to participate in the program.  Owners of eligible rental properties may be required to pay of 50% of any capital improvement measures that are installed.

Energy Conservation Measures

After a home energy assessment is performed by a trained energy auditor, a dwelling unit may qualify for some of these typical energy conservation measures:

  • Air sealing;
  • Energy efficient light bulbs;
  • Insulation;
  • Low-flow shower heads;
  • Pipe raps;
  • Solar screens; and
  • Weather-stripping.
