Program Description

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides home weatherization assistance to improve the quality of life for low-income families, particularly for the elderly, people with disabilities and children by improving the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety. The Weatherization Assistance Program for each of the state's 46 counties is coordinated through nine community action agencies.

General Program Requirements

  • People over 60 years of age
  • Families with one or more members with a disability
  • Families with children

Your Next Step

All weatherization services are provided by local weatherization agencies, including the application process.
