- There is no cost to the owner/occupant or tenants.
- Homes with any heating source are eligible.
- If you are a tenant, your landlord is required to sign an agreement stipulating that the home will continue to be rented to low-income residents for a set period that varies according to the funder requirements.
When your application is completed and approved, you will be placed on a waiting list and scheduled for an energy audit. Priority is given to disabled persons, elderly persons (60 years or older), and households with children under six years of age.
Weatherization of your home depends on funding availability for your particular type of house and fuel source. There is no guarantee your home will be weatherized. Once your application is approved, it will be valid for one year. This is a valuable service worth waiting for, however, it may require re-certification of your information due to the time involved in the waitlist.
