Save on Energy Bills with Weatherization Services
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 2017-2018, a family of 2 can earn up to $34,785 and for a household of 4 the limit is $51,155. Persons interested in the program must first apply for Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program. The program, a partnership with the Wisconsin Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources includes a variety of energy-saving services including:
- Insulation of attics, side walls and crawlspaces

Home Energy Plus helps qualified Wisconsin residents reduce energy use and costs through three offerings—the Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program (WHEAP), the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), and the Home Energy Plus Furnace Program. These offerings are available statewide and are funded by the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA), Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources (DEHCR). La Casa De Esperanza supports Home Energy Plus by providing weatherization services in Milwaukee, Jefferson, and Waukesha County.
