Healthier & Safer Homes

The Weatherization Assistance Program is designed to reduce energy waste, lower utility costs and ensure the health and safety of low-income residents in our region. Utilizing professionally trained crews, technicians can perform an in-depth energy analysis on a home to determine ways to reduce energy consumption and save money on utility bills.
