Community Action Partnership (CAP) has temporarily stopped accepting applications for the Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP). This program provides free weatherization services that include attic, sidewall and basement insulation, weather stripping, safety inspections of furnaces and water heaters and heating systems repairs or replacements.
HWAP serves households up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. For a family of four, the household income could not exceed $44,700. The agency currently has more than 1,900 applications on file for its entire service area of Butler, Darke, Greene, Montgomery and Preble counties. CAP anticipates that it will accept applications again in six months, when a large portion of the current applications are processed and the homes weatherized.
The agency will continue to take applications for the Vectren Project TEEM II program and DP&L Smart Energy Community Program. TEEM II weatherizes homes for income-eligible families with an annual income between 200 and 300 percent of the 2011 federal poverty level. For a family of four, this is an income range between $44,700 and $67,050.
Customers who qualify for PIPP Plus may be eligible for DP&L’s Smart Energy Community Program. Eligible customers receive a free audit of their home and its energy usage along with money-saving energy improvements.
