BGCAP - Weatherization Program

With funding provided from the Department of Energy and the Department of Housing, the Weatherization Program provides necessary home repairs to prevent heat loss and repair or replace heating systems when necessary. The goal of the program is to assist clients in securing a safe, healthy home environment and reduce heating and cooling bills by providing necessary home repairs. This may include repair or replacement of heating systems when necessary.

Some examples of the benefits of the Weatherization Program:

Window RepairEligibility for the program is based on income, although priority is given to the elderly and disabled. Upon approval, an inspection is performed on the client's home by the Weatherization staff to determine the extent of repairs necessary to make the residence safe, healthy and energy efficient.

In the year 2008, our Weatherization staff completed work on 104 homes, enabling 209 persons to stay warm in their homes and lower utility bills.

The Weatherization Program staff is committed to the health and safety of the clients served. All repairs to heat systems must meet the National Fuel Gas Code and all homes undergo a National Energy Audit and blower door infiltration test.

For more information or to apply for assistance, please contact your county's Community Developer Office.
