Weatherization - A Program to increase your home's energy efficiency
The Alaska State Legislature has dedicated funding to the Home Weatherization program administered by Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC). AHFC issued a grant to Cook Inlet Housing to provide free weatherization services, under this program, to qualified individuals in order to make their homes more energy efficient and thus less costly to operate.
To be eligible you must live in the home year round and the household unit income must not exceed 100% Area Median Income (AMI), adjusted for family size, as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). You may call us to speak with Tami in the Weatherization Department (793-3026) or you may download the Weatherization Application for more information.
