Alabama Weatherization Assistance Program
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley has awarded $1.77 million to help low-income residents cut their utility bills by making their homes more energy efficient. Those funds will go to support the Alabama Weatherization Assistance Program – which is designed to give priority consideration to the elderly, and all those with disabilities, as well as low-income residents with children. More than $113,000 will go to the Community Action Agency of Talladega, Clay, Randolph, Calhoun, and Cleburne Counties, more than $53,000 will go the Community Action of Etowah County, and more than $140,000 will be awarded to the Community Action Agency of Northeast Alabama – serving Cherokee, DeKalb, Blount, Jackson, Marshall and St. Clair counties. The funding was provided to the state by the U.S. Department of Energy with the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs.
