Quinn announces federal weatherization funds

October 15, 2009 The Illinois program reduces heating and cooling costs for low income families by improving the energy efficiency of their homes.

Weather-stripping, insulating attics and replacing windows are among the things that can be done to help.

Priority is given to households with high heating bills and those with elderly members, persons with a disability or young children.

Anyone interested in applying to have their home weatherized can call 877-411-9276 for more information.
