2016 Weatherizing & Repair Program Seeks Referrals
Habitat’s fall weatherizing activities are underway and we need your help! If you know someone who could benefit from our free Step One Basic Weatherizing service, own their home, live in the HFH/7RM service area (Brunswick and Harpswell in Cumberland County, Lincoln and Sagadahoc Counties), and meet the required Program Income Limits (up to 80% of AMI, includes all homeowners who qualify for LIHEAP), please refer them.
Trained volunteers work in teams to help low income homeowners to increase their home’s energy efficiency and affordability. Weatherizing may include: installing up to 6 interior storm windows per home, new weather stripping/caulking around doors and windows, insulating perimeter of cellar ceilings, and small energy related repairs. Homeowners can contact Michele Ober at [email protected], 207-504-9335 to apply.
