The Weatherization Assistance Program is the nation’s LARGEST residential energy efficiency program. Very simply, weatherization improves heating efficiency and fuel savings by ensuring your home holds in heat and air-conditioning, while keeping hot and cold air out. At NO CHARGE to the client, income eligible families receive a comprehensive home assessment which includes repair or replacement of heating systems, insulation, and air-sealing measures.
The program is paid for with federal Department of Energy (DOE) and Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) funds that are regulated by the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation.
ECKAN Weatherization Program assists a target population consisting of the elderly, handicapped and low-income families in fourteen counties. These counties include Anderson, Butler, Chase, Coffey, Douglas, Franklin, Greenwood, Harvey, Johnson, 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.
