All residents of Jackson County are eligible to apply for the Home Weatherization Program being administrated through the City of Kansas City, Missouri. The Home Weatherization Program assists homeowners by providing energy conservation services customized to meet their specific needs. Eligible applicants receive a two- to four-hour energy audit performed by a City employee, to determine where energy escapes and the most cost-effective way to correct energy use problems.
The United States Department of Energy has established this program, and the City of Kansas City is the designated agency in this area for the receipt and distribution of this program's funds to residents of all Missouri counties in the Greater Kansas City area: Jackson, Clay and Platte. One need only be a resident of Jackson County -- Blue Springs, Lee's Summit, unincorporated Jackson County, etc. -- to apply for this program. Visit this page on the City of Kansas City Web site for additional information and to download a Home Weatherization Program application. You can also call (816) 513-3025.
