Region I & Region VIII Weatherization
The Weatherization Program is a federally funded program designed to reduce the energy consumption of low-income families. The goal is to make homes safe, comfortable and energy efficient while saving the occupant money. The program serves renters or owners, whether they live in mobile homes, traditional wood framed homes, or apartments.
Furnace and moisture problems, as well as other potentially dangerous situations, can be addressed through the program. A personal assessment of each home and its energy use is completed. Energy saving methods are recommended through the Client Education Program.
Helping HANDs Funds are used to assist homeowners that are currently not eligible under Weatherization program guidelines. They may be used to install energy saving devices, weatherization measures, and minor housing repairs. Applicants who have large repair items are referred to the Housing Program.
