JEFFERSON CITY, MO, OCT. 23, 2023 – The Department of Natural Resources’ Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program has a positive effect on Missouri citizens, jobs and small businesses. In recognition of the benefits of that program, Governor Mike Parson signed a proclamation declaring Monday, Oct. 30, 2023, as Weatherization Day in Missouri.

Weatherization Day is an opportunity to highlight the impact of the Weatherization Assistance Program, which saves energy, improves the health and safety of homes, and supports jobs and small businesses.

“Investing in weatherization just makes sense,” said Emily Wilbur, director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Energy. “It maximizes the energy potential we have available and reduces the demand on our national energy grid.”

The department promotes the environmentally sound and energy-efficient operations of businesses, communities, agriculture and industry for the benefit of all Missourians. The state’s Weatherization Assistance Program funding is administered by the department’s Division of Energy through a network of 18 subgrantees.
