The Weatherization Program offers home improvements that will hopefully reduce your monthly energy costs which includes anything from caulking, weather-stripping doors, repair or replacement of gas water heaters, stoves and/or refrigerators.
The Weatherization program will cost you nothing. If anything is repaired or replaced, it is done at no cost to either the homeowner or tenant.
This program is available to all parts of the Contra Costa County.
Qualification for this program is based on the gross monthly income for the home.
