Who We Are

The Weatherization Assistance program provides funds to reduce the heating and cooling costs for low-income families and to ensure their health and safety. The program provides repairs and improvements to home heating and cooling systems and provides for the installation of energy-saving measures in the house. No cost to the family.

Assistance services are available for low-income households, particularly for the elderly, individuals with disabilities, and families with children.

The program provides direct installation of energy-saving measures such as: sealing air leaks with insulation, caulking, and weather-stripping; repairing leaky duct systems; repairing and/or replacing inefficient or unsafe heating systems; and installing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.

Assistance is available throughout the entire state from local community action agencies and nonprofit housing organizations. Federal and state grant funding is provided to make energy-related repairs and testing of heating system safety to homes occupied by families with low income.

Visit the website for information on weatherization providers where you may apply for home weatherization.
