The Weatherization program is available for both homeowners and renters who receive Fuel Assistance, and/or receive the lower-income discount on their electric bill. Using local licensed contractors, the program provides free major improvements, such as attic and wall insulation, air sealing, and other energy-saving measures.
Community Action technicians first perform an energy audit of the home or apartment, assign a local contractor, and then inspect all work once completed prior to the agency paying the contractor. If work is to be done on a rental property, Community Action, the landlord, and the tenant sign a three-party agreement.
To be placed on the waiting list for weatherization, you would first receive an electric efficiency audit, and then you will be placed on the list from the date of the electric efficiency audit. Priority is given to homes with elderly or handicapped residents, or children under the age of six. Customers are contacted when they are next on the list.
