Countywide weatherization assistance program
Submitted By Carole Kajita
Alameda County's Community Development Agency, Neighborhood Preservation & Sustainability Department (NPS) has received $1.9M of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act 2009 funding to begin a new countywide Weatherization Assistance Program (except Albany, Berkeley, and Emeryville which have an existing program) for homeowners and renters residing in 1-4 housing units in Alameda, Castro Valley, Dublin, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Newark, Oakland, Piedmont, Pleasanton, San Leandro, Sunol and Union City.
The program's aim is to improve energy efficiency to ensure health and safety of eligible low-income applicants in qualifying areas, in addition to conserving energy usage, resulting in lower utility bills.
Program eligibility is based on income criteria and requires supporting documents. All energy-efficiency measures are free for income-qualified applicants.
Informational meetings about the program and application process will be held throughout the county. The program is open until March 2012 or until funds are depleted.
