Weatherization Can Help Cut Your Energy Bills
The onset of winter has sparked interest in making homes more energy efficient. Nebraskans can apply for the Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program which enables low-income families to reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient. Typical weatherization improvements made to homes include adding wall and attic insulation, caulking, weather-stripping and sealing air leaks. Furnaces and water heaters also receive a safety inspection.
Eligibility for free weatherization is based primarily on income. Households with incomes at or below 125 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible. An easy-to-use table lists income maximums by size of family. In addition, households containing a member receiving either Aid to Dependent Children (ADC) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are automatically eligible.
The Nebraska Energy Office administers the weatherization program. Nine local, non-profit agencies across the state take applications, verify eligibility and arrange to have the weatherization work done. Annually, more than 1,300 homes are weatherized in Nebraska.
