October is National Weatherization Month!:

October is National Weatherization Month.  Weatherization provides a cost-effective permanent solution for reducing the heavy energy burden on low-income Americans.  As the cold weather approaches, most families across the country are turning up their thermostats to combat dropping temperatures.  For low-income families, however, cranking up the heat is not always an option.  These families pay 16.3% or more of their annual incomes for energy compared with only 3.5% for other non low-income families. The Weatherization Program is available to help make low-income households more energy efficient.  To apply for the Weatherization Program or for additional information, residents can contact CAADC at (610) 521-8770.
