The Weatherization program is designed to address the needs of cost-burdened, low-income Ocean County residents, unable to afford the added expense of repairing or replacing items in their home that if repaired or replaced, could help them reduce or eliminate high energy bills.
Eligibility is based on income guidelines from the federal government.
Program services include, but are not limited to:
•Broken glass repair
•Weather-stripping and/or caulking of doors and windows
•Insulating attics and crawlspaces
•Replacement of primary doors and windows
•Skirting mobile homes
•Hot water heater jackets
•Furnace repair or replacement
•Hot water heater repair or replacement
Weatherization services are available to income eligible homeowners at no cost. Services are available to tenants as well as homeowners. If the applicant is renting, the landlord must agree to pay 25% of the cost of shell weatherization, and 50% of the cost for heating system replacement, in order for the tenant to receive services.
