August is Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Action Month. LIHEAP funds weatherization to help make home energy costs affordable to stabilize housing for individuals and families, making it easier for them to stay in their homes.
Mid Michigan Community Action Agency (Mid Michigan CAA), a grantee of LIHEAP, utilizes the funding for energy education and to weatherize low-income homes. Weatherization helps households save money and improve comfort by installing insulation, repairing and replacing furnaces, and making other energy-efficient improvements.
“The services we provide through LIHEAP help residents save as much as 50% on their energy bills,” said Justin Walls, Mid Michigan CAA Housing Director. “Affordable energy is a critical resource, especially during extreme high and low temperatures. We help our neighbors stay safe and comfortable when we can provide energy-efficient solutions to lower those costs.”
Weatherization is available to low-income homeowners, renters, homes on land contracts, and landlords with multi-unit housing.
Residents of Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Mecosta, Midland, and Osceola Counties interested in weatherization should contact the Mid Michigan CAA office nearest them: Bay City at 989-894-9060, Big Rapids at 231-660-0271, Farwell at 989-386-3805, Gladwin at 989-426-2801, Midland at 989-832-7377, or Reed City at 231-791-7078 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mid Michigan Community Action guides local residents on the path to self-sufficiency through empowerment, education and community enrichment.
