Weatherization


The Weatherization Assistance Program enables low-income families to permanently reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient. It is this country's longest running, and perhaps most successful energy efficiency program. During the last 27 years, the U.S. Department of Energy 's (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program has provided weatherization services to more than 5.3 million low-income families.

With contracts with the PA Department of Community and Economic Development, GPU Penelec, and Peoples' Natural Gas, the Cambria County Community Action Partnership provides weatherization for approximately 350 families a year.  Currently, over 1100 families are on the waiting list for home weatherization, which includes installing attic insulation and venting, caulking and weather stripping doors and windows, wrapping hot water heaters, replacing water beds and refrigerators, and retrofitting or replacing energy inefficient of dangerous furnaces.  Clients also receive energy education to help them further reduce their energy bills.  

Weatherization is directed by Barbara Keilman.
