Why Weatherization?

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program reduces energy costs for low-income households by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety. It supports 8,500 jobs and provides weatherization services to approximately 40,000 homes every year using DOE funds. Economic Security Corporation's Weatherization uses energy retro fit conservation techniques, which make for safer and healthier homes for Southwest Missourians. We focus on easing the energy burden that many low income families or individuals experience due to living in older homes.
