ECKAN Weatherization Program assists a target population consisting of the elderly, handicapped and low-income families in thirteen counties. These counties include Anderson, Butler, Chase, Coffey, Douglas, Franklin, Greenwood, Harvey, Lyon, Marion, Miami, Osage and Wyandotte. The Weatherization Program’s service area is more extensive than the overall agency’s service area of nine counties. The Weatherization Program has been recognized and acknowledged as one of the best in the State of Kansas. 

 

This program includes rental properties as well as individually owned homes.  The grants allow ECKAN to pay for furnace repair or replacement in individually owned homes, and allow $250.00 towards furnace repairs or replacements in rental homes.  If the amount of repairs or replacements exceeds the $250.00, the landlord of the rental property is responsible for the remaining portion.
