If you are interested in having your home weatherized, you must first contact your local Community Action Agency to enroll.
Eligibility for the program is based on household income and the condition of your home.
To meet income guidelines, you can make up to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, or up to $51,500 for a family of 4.
Because the demand for these services routinely exceeds available funds, you can expect to be placed on a waiting list.
Once your home comes up on the wait list, you will be contacted and a state-trained energy auditor will be sent to your home to perform a comprehensive energy audit.
The audit may consist of:
Because the Health & Safety of all who enter your home is a priority, there are some things you should do to prepare.
The results of the audit are unique to your home and determine which energy efficiency upgrades will maximize energy savings for you.
Upon completion of the audit, state-trained contractors will install the energy efficiency upgrades prescribed by the auditor.
A final audit will be conducted at the completion of the installation work to ensure the energy efficiency measures installed are operating in such a way to maximize energy savings.
Because the work completed on your home is funded through the federal government, all audits and energy efficiency upgrades are installed at no cost to you.
After the final audit has been completed and approved by you, you will be responsible for maintenance of the home and all measures installed.
