La Casa’s Weatherization Program assists qualified, low income residential households in Jefferson, Waukesha and Milwaukee counties by identifying energy waste and providing cost effective, energy saving measures and education. Weatherization is provided at no cost to low-income owners and renters. Eligibility depends on the number of people in the home. For 2014-2015, a family of 2 can earn up to $32,890 and for a household of 4 the limit is $48,367. Persons interested in the program must first apply for Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program. To find out where to apply, please call toll free 1-866-HEATWIS (432-8947). More information on both programs can be found at www.homeenergyplus.wi.gov.
