Weatherization programs are designed to assist low-income households to reduce their heating bills by providing home energy efficiency services. The program is operational year round. After a household is determined eligible, a Mass. Weatherization Certified Energy Auditor completes an inspection of the home’s energy and health and safety concerns. Local certified and insured weatherization contractors are hired to complete the work at no cost to the occupants. Typical work includes air sealing, attic and/or sidewall insulation, weather stripping, and minor repairs associated with the weatherization work. Heating system work, if needed is done through HEARTWAP. All work will receive a thorough Quality Control inspection by the agency’s Energy Auditor. To the greatest extent possible, work is coordinated with any utility-funded Energy Efficiency programs that may be available. Households with incomes up to 60% of the estimated state median income are eligible for the Weatherization Assistance Program. Program eligibility is based on household eligibility for the LIHEAP Program. In addition, those households with a member receiving TAFDC or SSI are eligible. Tenants (with landlord approval) as well as homeowners are eligible for weatherization.
