If you are a low income customer using natural gas as a primary fuel for space heating you may be eligible for funds dedicated to weatherizing low income customers' homes. Minnesota Energy Resources provides funding to relevant Community Action Program (CAP) agencies for weatherization recruitment and installation. There is no cost to the customer. The measures installed at each home are left up to the discretion of the CAP agencies based on the best fit for each particular home. The following improvements are funded by Minnesota Energy Resources:

  • A standard energy audit
  • Blower door test and assisted air sealing
  • Side wall insulation
  • Attic insulation
  • Tuck under garages, foundations, crawl spaces, and rim joist insulation
  • Outdoor venting of dryers and exhaust fans
  • Caulking
  • Weatherstripping
  • Storm windows
  • Storm doors
  • Duct and pipe insulation in unfinished areas
  • Emergency heating system and water heating equipment replacement

Eligible customers must also meet state and federal poverty guidelines. To find out if you qualify for the Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program, please contact the community action agency in your area.
