Home Weatherization Program

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides free weatherization services to qualified Washtenaw County residents. The program is implemented through Washtenaw County in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and is designed to help residents lower their utility bills. We perform a free energy audit and based on the results of that audit, we provide eligible repairs on the home for free. Homeowners and renters that meet the eligibility requirements are welcome to apply. 


Free home improvements could include:

  • Air sealing work such as foaming gaps and holes in attics and foundations
  • Fresh air bath fan
  • Insulation of attics, walls, and crawlspaces
  • Replacements or repairs of inefficient furnaces, hot water heaters, and refrigerators
