NeighborImpact seeks applicants for Home Weatherization

Central Oregon—NeighborImpact currently has funds provided by USDA available for weatherizing homes in Jefferson County, with additional funding from NeighborWorks America for weatherizing homes in rural communities outside of Bend and Redmond.

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.

Clients can be renters or homeowners and live in mobile homes or stick built homes. 

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

Additional services may be available to qualified owner-occupied homes in Jefferson County including roof repair or replacement, wiring repair or replacement, plumbing repair or replacement and structural repair.
