Weatherization funds available
NeighborImpact was recently the recipient of grant funding provided by the Department of Energy and Bonneville Power Administration. The funds are provided in order to support the weatherization program in weatherizing homes for members of the Native American community.
NeighborImpact's weatherization program provides free weatherization services, which can include adding insulation, sealing leaky ducts and repairing heating systems for income-qualified clients.
Weatherization staff conduct an on-site energy audit, evaluating and documenting the existing condition of the home. That information is then used to determine which measures will save the most money on the home's utility bills.
The program is available to eligible low-income clients in Jefferson, Crook and Deschutes counties and to the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Additional funding is currently available for members of the Native American community. Clients can be renters or homeowners and live in mobile homes or stick-built homes.
Services may include the following:
- Attic, floor or wall insulation.
- Duct sealing and insulation.
- Air sealing.
- Health and safety repairs.
- Replacement of inefficient appliances, such as furnaces and/or refrigerators.
Since 1985, NeighborImpact has been a leader in developing solutions and bringing resources to Jefferson, Deschutes and Crook County and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
The agency offers a diversity of services meeting basic human needs for food and shelter, while enriching people's lives by providing access to increased education, skills, and hope for the future.
NeighborImpact is a private nonprofit organization that receives federal, state and local grants, foundation grants, and donations from individuals and businesses in the community. To learn more about NeighborImpact, visit www.neighborimpact.org.
