The South Central Community Action Program weatherizes homes in Brown, Monroe, Morgan and Owen counties.
The Weatherization Program reduces energy consumption in low-income households and insures that each client has a safe, operating heat source. Clients receive a furnace inspection and an energy audit. SCCAP uses private contractors to repair or replace heat sources, install insulation and seal the homes. It is estimated, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, that weatherized homes will save $2.1 billion for low-income families and save 53 metric tons of CO2 emissions per house.
Both homeowners and renters are eligible. To be eligible to have your home weatherized, your household income must not exceed 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines (see chart below). For apartment buildings to be weatherized, two-thirds of the occupants must be eligible for the program. The income limits by family size are:
|1 person||2 persons||3 persons||4 persons||5 persons|
If you are interested in having your home weatherized, please call 812-339-3447, ext. 702.
All SCCAP services are provided without regard to race, age, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry or status as a veteran.For a printable flyer with further information about Weatherization, click here.
