Weatherization Works for Missouri:  Pass It On!

Home energy is a basic necessity, but can be very costly for some homes, especially older and less energy efficient homes.

Weatherizing homes saves Missourians hard-earned cash. For every $1 invested in the Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program, $2.51 is returned to the household and society. Weatherization measures often include adding insulation to walls and attics, air-sealing drafty areas of the home, and repair or replacement of certain appliances.

Weatherization assistance – taking steps to maintain temperature by conserving heat in the winter and cool air in the summer – is available to Missouri households at no cost through a federal grant program designed to save energy and energy consumers money.

The Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program is an income-based program. Families of four earning up to $46,100 can qualify.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Energy administers federal funds to a statewide network of 19 local weatherization agencies.

Interested citizens whose household income during the last calendar year match the requirements as outlined on the chart above should contact their local agency, according to this map.

Your local weatherization agency can provide references, and can answer all your questions.

The local weatherization agency will provide application forms and require income documentation to verify eligibility. When the household is verified as eligible, a energy auditor will conduct an on-site audit of the home to determine which weatherization steps will produce the greatest energy and cost savings.

Upon approval, a local, trained, professional crew will install the energy efficiency measures, after which a quality control inspector will examine the work to ensure quality and completeness.

Special steps are taken to assure privacy and personal safety before, during and after the weatherization work.
