Implement a citywide building weatherization program through partnership with community organizations.
DCHHS currently implements a weatherization program for income-eligible households in the county. In partnership with DCHHS, the City will implement a weatherization program for the city’s vulnerable residents to improve energy efficiency and reduce utility costs. The City will identify funding to support a direct-install program for weather stripping, caulking, insulation, window and door repair, solar screens, heating and cooling unit repair/retrofits, and duct work. The City will also identify partnership opportunities with community organizations to help recruit program participants and assist in program implementation.
The weatherization program will include development of engagement programs to reach lower-income residents and the senior community, including Dallas’ non-native English households, to provide them with a clear understanding of participation benefits and financial or other resources available.
