The department attempts to correct any technical difficulties as they arise, but the meeting will not be subject to change or repeat due to any technical difficulties.

Council Structure

The Missouri Weatherization Policy Advisory Council is made up of 10 members. Nine members are appointed by the Department of Natural Resources' Division of Energy. One member is elected by the council members. Council members reflect the relevant groups the weatherization assistance program represents. A particular focus is placed on low-income households, especially those that include the elderly, the physically disadvantaged and families with children. Members include, but are not be limited to, the following:

  • Advocates of the Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program clientele who manage or deliver program services
  • Those who participate in or have a history of activities advocating low-income interests
  • Recipients or eligible recipients of the Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program

Considerations are given to geographic and equitable representation of Missouri. If you are interested in serving on this council, contact the Weatherization Assistance Program at energy@dnr.mo.gov.
