Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri is seeking homeowners, renters, and landlords interested in participating in the Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program.
The program provides cost-effective energy-efficient home improvements to Missouri’s low-income households, especially for the elderly, children, those with physical disadvantages, and others hit hardest by high utility costs.
The program aims to lower utility bills, improve comfort, and ensure health and safety. It can help with minor household improvements and repairs, such as sealing around doors and windows to reduce air leaks, improving existing insulation, and installing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
The Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri notes that weatherization will not be completed overnight. There is a waiting list, and it can take up to several months before agency staff will call someone back regarding an application.
Homeowners, renters, or landlords may request an application to receive weatherization services by calling the agency at 855-290-8544 extension 1064 or by visiting the CAPNCM website.
The Department of Economic Development oversees the Weatherization Program, and Missouri’s Community Action Partnerships operate it.
