If you are struggling with expensive utility bills, the Illinois Home Weatherization Assistance Program (IHWAP) provides free weatherization upgrades to low-income households. These weatherization services make homes more energy-efficient, which reduces a household’s energy usage as well as saves money.
Some IHWAP services include air sealing, attic and wall insulation, HVAC repair or replacement, water heater repair or replacement, and more. Households with a combined gross income at or below 200% of the federal poverty line may be eligible. For more information, visit the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity website.
