The Weatherization of homes benefits income eligible households by conserving energy. Improvements include, but are not limited to: air sealing, caulking, insulation of side walls, attics, and foundations, water heater jackets, and a variety of additional energy and/or health and safety measures. Weatherization is generally a "one time" service for a given home. Funding by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
The service is free to qualifying households. Applicants need to bring in:
LOW INCOME HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (LIHEAP)
LIHEAP funds augment eligible Weatherization measures to increase energy efficiency and further reduce fuel costs. LIHEAP funds may also repair/replace roofs(subject to funding availability), furnaces, and water heaters meeting inspection/testing criteria at the time Weatherization services are provided. Energy Education is also provided to Weatherization applicants/clients through LIHEAP. Weatherization clients are automatically considered for LIHEAP services and those seeking service specific to LIHEAP (roof, furnace, and water heater) should apply for Weatherization.
MICHIGAN PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION (MPSC)
MPSC Weatherization funds may be used to increase Weatherization services and can provide Weatherization /LIHEAP services to households exceeding DOE/Weatherization income guidelines (up to 200% of gross Federal Poverty level). Low Income Energy Education (LIEE) is available for clients who are not eligible for LIHEAP energy education (below 200% of gross Federal Poverty level).
