Brief: Money available for weatherization
July 21, 2009
Utah will receive $15,158,881 in federal stimulus money to weatherize more than 4,400 homes, reducing energy use and costs for families while improving living conditions in the homes. The Weatherization Assistance Program will be available to families who make up to 150 percent of the federal poverty level or about $33,075 a year for a family of four. Utahns are encouraged to dial 211 for the local weatherization agency that serves their areas. Qualifying households will receive comprehensive energy audits at no cost. Possible maintenance includes air sealing, weather stripping, insulation of all types, and furnace repair or replacement.
