Assistance Program Works
Weatherization Assistance Program:
A Client’s Story
Home Weatherization FAQ
Eligibility is based on household income relative to federal low-income guidelines. If a household contains a member who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Public Assistance, Food Stamps, or Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) benefits, the household is considered automatically eligible for weatherization services. Special considerations are given to the elderly, handicapped, and to households with small children. See chart below.

The weatherization program provides services at no cost to qualifying applicants.
If you rent your home and qualify for the program you may still receive services. We must have a signed statement from the owner authorizing the weatherization program to make repairs as well as proof of ownership. Landlords not qualifying for the program will need to share in the costs of the repairs.
