In 1975 SENCA started Weatherizing the homes of eligible households, with an emphasis being placed on the homes of the elderly, persons with disabilities, and homes with small children. The goals of the Weatherization Program are to save energy, reduce heating and cooling costs, and to ensure the health and safety of the households served. The average home experiences an average of 18.7% reduction in heating costs. Additional savings are achieved in cooling costs. This conservation of energy reduces Nebraska's dependence on imported energy and is a major contribution to the self-sufficiency of low-income persons allowing them to stretch their available income.
Eligibility guidelines for Weatherization is 200% of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines.
The Weatherization program is available in the counties of: Cass, Johnson, Nemaha, Otoe, Pawnee, Richardson, and Sarpy.
