During Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program (NERP) canvassing and outreach, volunteers may find that some residents will not qualify for NERP because of their household income. Residents who have a household income level at or below an index guideline established by the federal government will not be eligible to participate in NERP.

Residents who do not qualify for NERP because of their household income may be eligible to participate in the Operation Breakthrough (OBT) weatherization program. Operation Breakthrough will provide up to $4,000 in weatherizing services that include a home energy audit and HVAC and weatherization services. Under the OBT program, homeowners are not required to contribute towards the cost of the weatherization services. NERP participants must contribute either $200 – $300 toward the retrofit repairs and will receive weatherizing services between $1,500 and $2,000. Don’t be discouraged if you do not qualify for NERP, because you may be eligible for more, free services!

If you are a resident in one of the NERP neighborhoods and you do not qualify because of your income, contact OBT weatherization (688-8111 ext 270) to request an application.
