Weatherization and Test and Tune Program Information

Weatherization Program

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides free weatherization services to qualified Washtenaw County residents. The program is implemented through Washtenaw County in partnership with the US Department of Energy and is designed to help residents lower their utility bills. We perform a free energy audit and based on the results of that audit, we provide eligible repairs on the home free of charge. Homeowners and renters that meet the eligibility requirements are welcome to apply. See below for more information and application instructions.
