Weatherization

KCHA's Weatherization program helps low-income renters and homeowners reduce their energy costs and improve the indoor air quality of their homes. Common repairs include:

  • Ventilation improvements
  • Insulation installs
  • Furnace repairs
  • Air sealing to prevent drafts

This program generally does not provide new windows.

Eligibility

KCHA provides services to single-family and mobile homes at no cost to households that meet our guidelines. To find out if you're eligible, use the calculator provided below. We also perform services for multi-family apartment buildings if the majority of tenants are income-eligible. Owners of these properties are asked to pay a portion of the repair costs.                                                                                                                                             Contact us at energyconservation@kcha.org or call (206) 214-1240 for more information.
