Getting Weatherization Assistance

By renovating older homes and multi-family buildings, the Weatherization Assistance Program helps low-income families conserve energy and save money. Last year alone, the program served 3,618 residents in more than 2,400 homes.

Working with the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority, local community action agencies determine whether a family may participate in the program and guide eligible families though their homes' energy audits. To see if you qualify for assistance, contact your local community action agency, and read about program income requirements.

Families that qualify for the weatherization program may also want to apply for heating assistance with the Georgia Community Action Association when it starts to get cold in the late fall.

You can learn more about weatherization by reading about its benefits.
