Home weatherization assistance to be offered to low-income households in Cache Valley Nonattainment Area

Thursday, July 12, 2018

FRANKLIN COUNTY, IDAHO AND CACHE COUNTY, UTAH - The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality is partnering with SouthEastern Idaho Community Action Agency (SEICAA) and Bear River Association of Governments (BRAG) to provide in-home evaluations, energy audits, and home weatherization for homeowners in the Cache Valley Nonattainment Area.

The weatherization program provides assistance to low-income households to improve the efficiency of their home. Home weatherization improves the energy efficiency of a house through a series of energy conservation measures that may include: air sealing, repairs to broken windows, insulation, caulking or weather stripping and heating and cooling system improvements. Homes that have been weatherized require less energy to heat and cool, resulting in less air polluting emissions and lower utility bills.

This project is made possible through an Environmental Protection Agency grant designed to reduce air pollution from homes located in either the Franklin County, Idaho or Cache County, Utah portion of the Cache Valley Nonattainment Area. The grant will pay the full cost of weatherization for low-income homeowners that meet the eligibility criteria established by SEICAA and BRAG.

If you are interested in applying for the weatherization program contact the following for an application to determine if you qualify:

  • Franklin County residents contact Kandie Avery, SEICAA Franklin County Coordinator at (208) 852-1515.
  • Cache County residents contact Jesse Waite, BRAG Weatherization Director at (435) 752-7242.
