Helping People. Changing Lives.

Weatherization assistance makes qualifying homes more energy efficient.

Program Description

The weatherization program is a free program designed to help eligible families make their homes safer and more energy efficient. Measures can include attic, wall, and floor insulation, sealing around windows and ducts, weather-stripping, carbon monoxide testing, and heating system tune-ups, among others.

Weatherization services do not include roof replacement, siding repairs, mold or asbestos abatement, plumbing, major electrical work, or interior furnishings.

NCAP provides weatherization services to the Nebraska Panhandle and Cherry County. Priority is given to persons over 60, persons with disabilities, and families with children under six.

General Program Requirements

In order to qualify for this benefit program the applicant's home must not have been weatherized since September 30, 1994.

In addition, home occupants must be legal residents of the United States, and they must have a qualifying annual gross income. The income threshold for the weatherization assistance program is 200% of the federal poverty level. For more information see our eligibility page
