The Council of Community Services is one of only two nonprofits that provide weatherization services to low-income, vulnerable residents in the state of Wyoming. Our services help the most vulnerable members of our population save money on their energy bills and in turn, take a large burden off already struggling households.
People who are approved for assistance through LIEAP may also be eligible for Weatherization services to make their homes more energy efficient and further lower heating costs.
The Weatherization Assistance Program helps households save money on home heating costs by improving energy efficiency. Weatherizing homes often means adding more insulation, sealing leaks around doors and windows, and it always includes basic health and safety checks. An energy audit determines which weatherization measures will get the biggest bang for the weatherization dolls spent on each home. Weatherization can save 5-25 percent on home heating bills.
