> Florida Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program provides grants to community action agencies, local governments, Indian tribes and non-profit agencies to fund energy saving repairs to low-income homes in all counties. Grants are allocated based on a formula combining population and weather data and an average of $2,600 may be spent on each home. The type of measures include insulation, weather stripping, water heater wraps and reduction of air infiltration. Furnaces and air conditioning systems may be repaired or replaced. An energy audit and diagnostic testing must be performed on each home. The house data is entered into a computer software program and a print out is provided. The print out is evaluated to determine the measures that, if addressed, should reduce the energy consumption of the home thus lowering the client's monthly utility bill.
