GLEAMNS receives funds for the Weatherization Program to help eligible households with provisions of services and materials in the Upper Savannah Region (Greenwood, Laurens, Edgefield, Abbeville, McCormick, Newberry, and Saluda), as well as Anderson, Oconee and Pickens Counties. The State of South Carolina Weatherization Assistance Program establishes the policy that eligible dwellings units shall have the following energy conservation measures installed as warranted:
By lowering energy bills for low-income families, Weatherization increases their self-sufficiency.
Weatherization measures are delivered to homeowners and renters who reside in single-family homes and mobile homes. Priority is given to applicants who are elderly, disabled, and households with children. Applicants must be income eligible to qualify for Weatherization Assistance based on Federal Poverty Guidelines.
Applicants eligible for Weatherization are those who indicated they wanted their dwelling weatherized during specific enrollment periods. Applicants are placed on a waiting list based on date of application arrayed by county. Applicants are notified in writing when their dwelling has been selected from the waiting list.
