State-of-the-art equipment is used to determine which measures are needed in each residence and to measure the carbon monoxide level in the home.  Carbon monoxide tests are performed to ensure that the carbon monoxide in the home is below the harmful level and that the weatherization services will not raise the level above that which is acceptable for the occupants’ health.

ELIGIBILITY

Eligibility is based upon family size and income as published in the federal register.  Currently the Weatherization Assistant Program operates at 200% of the Poverty Guidelines and the Heating Air Repair and Replacment Program operates at 150%.  Interested persons should contact the W.A.M.Y.
