Band Bake Sale Set Weatherization Assistance Program Offered rrhe Texas Department of Community Affairs provides services to Jt make homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer through the Weathcrization Assistance Program of Panhandle Commnnity Ser- vices. The Weatherization Assistance Program is not a renovation nor rehabilitation program; therefore the program does not address cosmetic improvements or other work which does not directly affect the energy efficiency of your home. The condition of every home is different. An assessment will be made of your house to identify the location of cracks, holes, and areas where air escapes. In winter, this means cold air entering the home and warm air escaping. Naturally in summer, this works in reverse, hot air enters and, if you use an air conditioner or evaporative cooler, expensive cool air escapes. The Weatherization Assistance Program limits the amount of money that can be spent on a house for weatherization improvements. Weatheriza- tion costs and the work done on a house will vary based on the condition of the house and the availability of funds. For one time only, the State of Texas is providing Weatherization services for people who have not qualified under the regular low- income guidelines. This special program is now available for families who have income up to 175% of poverty income guidelines. If your gross yearly income is less than the amount listed on the chart below, you may qualify for this special program. All applications must be made no later than June 20, 1995.
