CEDA Weatherization is a year-round program using state-of-the-art technology to make homes more energy-efficient for qualifying low-income clients in Chicago and suburban Cook County. Weatherization provides safety and health equipment, repairs or replaces heating systems, seals air bypasses and other drafty areas, increases attic, wall, basement, and crawl space insulation. These measures will save energy for homeowners and keep homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
*Please note: If you are LIHEAP approved, or someone else in your household receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Aid to the Aged Blind & Disabled (AABD) or Transitional Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) your income automatically qualifies your household for weatherization with approved supporting documentation.
The Multi-Family Illinois Home Weatherization Assistance Program (IHWAP) is for building owners who provide housing to income-eligible residents in Chicago and suburban Cook County. The program will require a 50% mechanical contribution from the owner, if 66% or more of the tenants are income eligible. IHWAP is a federally and state funded program that helps to make low-income housing more energy efficient, safe and comfortable. Weatherization measures are identified during an energy audit conducted by CEDA’s state-certified assessors.
