Weatherization Program Available to Qualified Residents

aid1389905-728px-Weatherize-Your-Home-Step-5Bullet3The Weatherization Program returns  to Sulphur Springs this year and th Ark-Tex Council of Governments seeks to add to the number of homes that will become more energy efficient and provide utility cost savings to the resident. According to Sulphur Springs Mayor Kayla Price, 17 homes were weatherized last year. That number has changed in the past four months.

This year, the goal for the program is 50 homes and according to Hank Byrd his group has worked on 25 homes over the past four months. He stated he has managed this program for the past seven years. Sulphur Springs and the area has never traditionally had a number of people signed up.

As soon as a home is qualified, work begins. Byrd called the work a turn-key job. Funding limitations do control the number of homes that can be weatherized but Byrd said currently funds are available to do between 35 and 40 homes statewide. He said he prefers the work to be performed in Northeast Texas.

Qualifications for the Weatherization Program include:

  • You must rent or won your own home or duplex.
  • You must also have natural gas service through Atmos Energy.
  • You must be experiencing higher than average energy burdens and financial hardship that limit your ability to make weatherization improvements to your home.

To find out if you qualify, call 1-855-738-4710.
