Applications accepted for weatherization program

Kentucky’s Weatherization Program, operated locally by Leslie, Knott, Letcher, Perry Community Action Council Inc., is taking applications for weatherization services in Letcher County. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, commonly known as the economic stimulus, will provide funding for the weatherization of homes in the area.

To make an appointment to submit an application, call 606-633-4458. Those whose income is at or below 200 percent of the poverty level may be eligible.

The application process takes about 20 minutes. Applicants need to provide proof of income for the past year and answer questions about their home such as how many people live there, their ages, and some other general questions. The names of applicants who are eligible for services are put on a waiting list and ranked in a priority order. An energy auditor from LKLP will meet with eligible applicants to explain the work that will take place and how crews will proceed while in their home.
