The Weatherization program helps low-income homeowners and renters reduce energy costs by improving home energy efficiency. The process begins with an energy audit to identify any improvements needed. Improvements may include insulation, weather-stripping, caulking, and some safety-related repairs.
To qualify, individuals must be eligible for the Low-income Heating Assistance Program (LiHEAP) and not have had their home weatherized since September 30, 1985. Priority is given to households with elderly (over 60), children (24 months and younger) or handicapped individuals.
NOTE: not all homes will qualify once the energy audit is done, and some will be deemed ineligible before the audit begins.
Homes with structural damage, leaking roofs, log construction with natural log finish, and those without running water or electrical services (such as seasonal camps) are not eligible to participate. To learn more about the requirements and determine if you qualify, contact Shannon Bean at the Bangor office: 207-974-2407.
Residents in the Rockland area may call 207-596-0361
