Home improvement subsidies
Interested in saving money on cooling this summer? You might qualify for assistance or subsidies that could make your home improvement projects more affordable. For assistance try contacting:
Your utility companies. Utility companies sometimes provide homeowners with subsidized prices for home energy audits and rebates for projects and appliances that can increase efficiency in your home.
Your local Community Action Program (CAP). CAPs sometimes offer energy assistance, access to low-interest loans, low-income weatherization and may provide other services.
Neighborhood Energy Connection (NEC). NEC can help homeowners to locate a home energy auditor, rebates and tax credits, and low-interest state or county loans for improving home energy efficiency (TheNEC.org).
