Gov. Laura Kelly joined with Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC), which administers the Kansas Weatherization Assistance Program, to commemorate Energy Action Month in Kansas. The statewide Weatherization Assistance Program seeks to reduce energy costs for low-income families by improving the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety.
Weatherization services are installed free-of-charge for qualifying low-income homeowners and renters. Services are customized for each individual residence but may include:
- Weather stripping
- Caulking around doors and windows and other air leaks
- Repair or replace inefficient or dangerous furnaces
- Adding insulation to walls, ceilings, and floots
- Lighting and ventilation upgrades
Kansas received $31,974,404 in additional Weatherization funding through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). These funds will be expended over a 5-year period. This is in addition to annual funding of about $9 million. We anticipate an additional 2,330 homes will receive services over the next five years with these additional funds.
Eligibility for the weatherization program is based on household income relative to federal low-income guidelines. Applications are accepted year-round. Learn more.
