Weatherization Assistance
Free help with weatherization if you qualify

Not the DIY type? Weatherization steps — such as adding insulation, reducing unwanted air leaks or improving your heating system — can help save energy, control energy bills and keep your home warm and cozy. But, what if there’s no room in your budget?

Help is available! If you meet the income guidelines below, you might be able to get someone else to do the work – for FREE – even if you are renting (be sure to coordinate with your landlord). If you qualify, your local Community Action Agency can connect you with someone who can help with insulation, furnace repair, heating duct improvements, and more. They’ll even help you replace your refrigerator with a more efficient one.
