The Weatherization Assistance Program provides assistance to economically disadvantaged individuals, particularly the elderly and disabled, to promote a more comfortable healthy environment, conserve energy and reduce high utility bills.
Weatherization programs are funded by several different sources. The Department of Energy and Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program provides funding through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs. As in all weatherization programs, all assistance is based on eligibility and availability of state and federal funds.
Because the goal is to reduce energy consumption by making the home more energy-efficient, renovations and cosmetic improvements are not included. The weatherization assistance program MAY include the following:
Attic, floor and wall insulation
Skirting/underpinning exposed floors
Patching holes in floor, ceiling, outside walls
Repair/replace/retrofit heat/cool equipment
Address health and safety issues.
All the above items may not apply to every home.
