Weatherization Agency Priorities and Service

The Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources contracts with various agencies throughout the state to provide weatherization services to eligible households. Agencies include community action agencies, housing authorities, local governments and other non-profit organizations.

The weatherization agency for your area, Hartford Community Development Authority, will receive a list of eligible applicants from WHEAP and will determine service priority and the eligibility for your home. Your weatherization agency will contact the highest priority households to evaluate the home and decide what weatherization services are needed. Appropriate weatherization services will be completed by agency crews and subcontractors.
