What is Weatherization? Who is Eligible for the program? Who to contact for an application?
The Kansas Weatherization Assistance Program provides energy savings for your home.  

Some of the services that are provided:

*Adding insulation to your attic, walls, and floors
*Testing, cleaning, and tuning your furnace and water heater
*Repairing or replacing your furnace
*Sealing cracks around windows and doors
*Lighting, refrigerator, fan upgrades

Of course, not all of these measures are appropriate for every house.  The focus is on the measures that will help each home the most.  The goal is to make you more comfortable living in your home, while helping you lower your utility bills.

Are you Eligible?  To be eligible, you must live in Kansas and meet the income guidelines (See attached document).  If someone in your house has received SSI, TANF, OR LIEAP utility benefits in the past year, you are automatically eligible.  

Both homeowners and renters may be eligible.

Once a weatherization application is complete and eligibility is determined, services are provided on first come first serve basis, with priority given to:

*homes occupied by individuals who are elderly
*homes occupied by individuals who are disabled and
*homes occupied by children under 18 years of age
