Weatherization

Weatherization services for low-income families.

Eligibility

The client must be a resident of one of the counties we serve: Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson, Monroe, Morgan, Scott, Sevier, and Union 

Explanation of Services

This program is funded at the national level by the United States Department of Energy. Funds are distributed to local Weatherization agencies such as ETHRA through the Tennessee Housing Development Agency. Weatherization measures provided by this program are designed to reduce heat loss and energy costs by improving the heating and cooling efficiency of homes occupied by low-income families in our area.

The Weatherization Program helps low income families save on their home energy bills by providing services such as added insulation; air and duct sealing; and the replacement of windows or doors. Results of an initial energy audit determine the needed improvements, which are funded through grants, not loans. The grants are awarded based on a points system to ensure that the most needy receive assistance first. Interested individuals can be added to the waiting list, which may be several years, depending on the availability of future funding.
