How Weatherization works

The Weatherization Program uses various energy conservation measures to help eligible families reduce heating and cooling costs. This program uses the Neat Audit to determine what needs to be done in the home, i.e., insulation, weather stripping, duct sealing, air infiltration, windows, replacing inefficient heating and cooling appliances. Health and safety instruction is also provided, as well as checking homes for the presence of carbon monoxide with carbon monoxide and smoke detectors installed in all weatherized homes. All Weatherization services are completely free to eligible households as well as Landlords.

Eligibility

Households receiving SSI or a VA Means-Tested Program Payment are categorically eligible for weatherization. Other households' income must be below 200% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines to be eligible. Prioritization is applied to each household based on (1) Energy Burden & Consumption, (2) Poverty Level, (3) Vulnerable Household Members, and (4) Children 5 and Younger.
