We are all things home.

February 2020
 
Love is in the air...love for all things home. Does your home need some love? Or are you looking for a home to love? They say that home is where the heart is and we want to make sure that rings true for you. Whether your home just needs a little support, or maybe a bigger energy project, we want to encourage you to focus on making your home happy, healthy and loved this month. 

Sending you love from all of us here at NeighborWorks of Western Vermont!
HEAT Squad and Efficiency Vermont team up to bring weatherization incentives to underserved communities. 

HEAT Squad and Efficiency Vermont

HEAT Squad and Efficiency Vermont are partnering to expand access to Efficiency Vermont's key weatherization program, Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®, in regions of the state where a lack of contractor availability has made it difficult for many to participate. Historically, households in the Northeast Kingdom and in Bennington County have had access to fewer Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® contractors than other regions in Vermont. The partnership will leverage HEAT Squad's services to help Vermonters in these regions participate in the Efficiency Vermont incentive programs, which currently pay for half the cost of a weatherization project up to $4,000 for qualified moderate-income households. Those interested in pursuing a comprehensive weatherization project should visit www.efficiencyvermont.com/HP or to learn more about HEAT Squad services, visit www.heatsquad.org.
