Energy Efficiency Made Easier
Air sealing, insulation, proper ventilation, and LED bulbs can make a significant impact on monthly utility bills. And for households with income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, our weatherization program can help reduce the energy burden, while improving home safety and durability.
After qualifying for assistance, and assuring a home’s livability, our assessors work with local contractors to determine the most effective weatherization methods. For those who don’t qualify, we offer information and advice via a community resources fair for easy, DIY improvements.

Linda’s house had been without hot water, a working toilet, or heating for over three years when her case came across our case manager Ingrid’s desk.

Linda and her house are now ready for cold winters.
