Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program reduces energy costs for households by making their homes more energy efficient. Services are provided in Clinton and Franklin Counties, at no cost to the household. Acceptance to this program is based on income eligibility. We serve both homeowners and renters!
After being approved for the program, a comprehensive energy audit will be conducted and a work scope created by a certified energy professional. Measures that may be taken include: heating systems repairs/replacement, distribution of the heating system, insulation, ventilation, indoor air quality, smoke alarms installation, CO alarms installation, and venting of dryers and refrigerators. Weatherization is a great way to conserve energy and save money on heating and cooling your home throughout the year!
