Home Improvement Programs
Cook Inlet Housing Authority has decades of experience improving homes in Anchorage and throughout Southcentral Alaska. Our expert staff understand the building science of home construction, home inspection, and building techniques for cold climates, and our staff are current on state-of-the-art remodeling techniques. We work on home rehabilitation and renovation of existing housing through our residential home improvement and weatherization programs. CIHA's rehabilitation and weatherization team help homeowners and renters who are eligible to improve their homes' safety, comfort, and efficiency.
The Weatherization Assistance Program is not an emergency response program. However, the program does prioritize those who are elderly, families who have one or more members with a disability, and families with children.
Cook Inlet Housing Authority maintains a waitlist for this program, and households may wait a year or more after their application is approved before they receive assistance, including those with priority.
Funding for this program comes from the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation.
