Maine Weatherization Assistance Program

undefined Maine Weatherization Assistance Program?


The Maine State Housing Authority operates the Weatherization and Central Heating Improvement Programs (CHIP) to finance energy related repairs for low income homeowners and renters. The programs are run through Maine's Community Action Program (CAP) agencies. The Weatherization program finances improvements that increase the energy efficiency of the home - such things as insulation, weatherstripping, and in some cases safety related repairs or more general improvements.
