The CAATCRCC Weatherization program performs energy efficient measures to reduce energy cost for low income Alabama Citizens by improving the energy efficiency of their homes. The Weatherization Program specifically focuses on assisting low income persons, primarily the elderly, persons with disabilities, and families with children. The primary focus of the Weatherization Program is reducing Air Infiltration and Insulation of the home.
Our Weatherization Programs are funded through grants received from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in the form of two grants: the Department of Energy (DOE) grant and the Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program (LIWAP) grant. HOME FORWARD grants are competitive grants used to implement measures that supplement LIWAP and DOE funded projects. Home Forward grants are funded by the Alabama Power Business Charitable Trust (ABC Trust)
