The Home Weatherization Program is funded by the Federal Department of Energy (DOE) and administered by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The program provides free energy conservation services for eligible low-income households. DHHS contracts with Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency (NMCAA) to operate the program. The Agency determines applicant eligibility, performs the necessary inspections and weatherization and contracts with mechanical contractors to complete mechanical work. Services may include:
- Home Energy Audit
- Weather-stripping, caulking, general air sealing
- Window/door repair or replacement
- Attic, foundation, wall, or sill box insulation
- Programmable thermostat installation
- Furnace, water heater, refrigerator tune-up or replacement
Studies show an average of 15% to 40% reduction of fuel usage.
(Actual results may vary.)

Household Size Last 3 months of Income
1 person $ 6,030
