Grant to a Washington, DC nonprofit organization for the provision of cost-effective, high-quality, and energy efficient weatherization for low-income households in the District. Funding may be used for single family or multi-family homes from households that are at or below 60% of the District's median income level or 200% of the federal poverty level.
Weatherization services improve the overall comfort, energy efficiency, and safety of homes. These services are provided free of charge to all qualifying households. To deliver services, DOEE provides grants to grantees, who are responsible for performing weatherization improvements and upgrades. A successful applicant will assist DOEE in achieving this purpose by installing approved energy efficiency measures in low-income households and providing energy-related information to occupants. The measures could include energy-audit recommended measures, HVAC repair or replacement, health and safety measures, or renewable energy systems.
Based on the results of the energy audit, services may include:
- Air sealing to reduce air infiltration;
- Insulation of attics and walls;
- Heating system repairs or replacement;
- Hot water tank and pipe insulation;
- Installation of energy-efficient lighting and refrigerators;
- Window and outside door repair or replacement;
- Renewable energy systems; and
- Mitigation of health and safety issues, including indoor air quality improvements,
asbestos removal, mold remediation, lead abatement, and roof repair or replacement
