Funds available for weatherization of Native American homes

Redmond, OR – NeighborImpact currently has funds available for 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.  This 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 Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson 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. Clients may culturally identify themselves as Native American and do not need to live on a reservation or provide documentation of their ethnicity.

Services may include:

* 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
