Weatherization Assistance for Low-Income Households

While there are many benefits to weatherizing your home, doing so isn’t free of costs. For homeowners with low household incomes the cost of materials for even simple projects can add up and hiring a contractor for more comprehensive projects can be cost prohibitive.

Fortunately, there is help.

The states of Vermont and New Hampshire each partner with local Community Action Program (CAP) agencies in the Upper Valley to provide free audits and weatherization services to those who meet need-based income guidelines.
