Clark Public Utilities and Clark County operate a joint low-income weatherization program to provide more efficient weatherization service to low-income families. Clark County Community Development administers the program, which provides free insulation, minor weatherization-related repairs, and in some cases ductless heat pumps to families who meet program guidelines.
Both owner-occupied and rental houses, including manufactured homes, are eligible for these programs, regardless of heat source, if the occupants meet the program income guidelines. Health, safety and comfort issues are all addressed as part of each project.
Clark Public Utilities provides funding used to make energy efficiency improvements in electrically heated homes of qualified low-income Clark County residents. The county receives additional funding from several federal and state agencies for homes with other types of heat sources. Local matching funds make it possible to fully address the needs of each eligible home.
