Income Eligible Weatherization

Eligible families can reduce energy consumption by up to 35%. 

Weatherizing your home reduces the amount of energy you use— by up to 35%. But it can be tough finding the time and money to make those changes to your home. We offer assistance with the Income-Eligible Weatherization program that helps you lower energy bills.

What you get: free in-home upgrades, financial assistance to weatherize your home, expert guidance, reduced energy usage and improved home health and safety.
