Weatherization Close-Ups


With the additional funding from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), DOE started development of new Weatherization Close Ups to highlight how each state and territory is using the Weatherization Recovery Act funding and what type of impact it is making on a local and state level. The Weatherization Close Ups will be updated over the course of the Recovery Act as each state and territory achieves weatherization production and other program goals.
