Residents can tap weatherization aid
Last updated 6/29/2021 at Noon
NeighborImpact’s weatherization program is accepting applications from residents of Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs to help lower energy costs and increase the durability of their homes.
The Weatherization Program provides free services to income-qualified renters or homeowners living in manufactured and stick-built homes. The program is currently scheduling home energy audits for qualified applicants. Those who apply now can have a more comfortable, energy-efficient home by winter.
Services provided include insulation for floors, ceilings, and walls; air sealing and duct sealing, and assessments and replacing of heating, cooling, and water systems as needed.
The Weatherization Program typically serves 100 low-income households a year. Clients benefit not only by saving on energy costs but also by improving the comfort, condition, and livability of their homes.
Income limits, guidelines, and applications can be found online at NeighborImpact’s website: www.neighborimpact.org/get-help/help-with-bills/home-weatherization/.
