You may qualify if you meet the income guidelines below. To apply, call the Community Action Agency listed for the county where you live. Sometimes there is a waiting list, so you’ll want to call as soon as possible.
The agency you contact will send an employee or contractor to perform the audit and weatherization work. Agency staff and contractors are taking extra precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19 and are following Oregon’s health guidance, including physical distancing, wearing gloves and face coverings, and disinfecting tools frequently.
Ask the agency for the name of the contractor, so you can confirm the contractor’s identity when they arrive. Remember, the work is provided at no cost to eligible participants. Renters may also receive assistance, but your landlord must agree to have the work done.
For more information on how the program works, visit the Oregon Housing and Community Services website.
