Home Weatherization Assistance Program
LIHEAP assists households whose incomes are at or below 125% of the federal poverty level (FPL) with maintaining access to heating services.
EVERYONE BENEFITS from weatherization because it:
- Preserves homes affordability to low-income families
- Improves health and safety of homes
- Reduces energy usage and a home’s carbon footprint
- Improves the local economy by creating jobs and supporting business through the purchase of weatherization materials
To qualify, the gross income received by all household members must be at or below 60% of the state median income or 200% of the current federally established poverty guidelines – whichever is greater. Income documentation and evaluation is required to determine actual eligibility. The homeowner will be required to sign authorization forms if determined eligible for assistance. Homes that are severely deteriorated and require extensive repairs may be ruled “beyond the scope of the program” and therefore ineligible for weatherization
To see if you qualify or if you have any questions call us at 360-533-5100. You will be asked to provide required documentation to establish eligibility prior to scheduling your appointment.
