Who qualifies for free services?
Low and middle-income residents in the Colorado counties that the Energy Resource Center serves who have gross incomes at or below 200 to 250 percent of the federal poverty level can qualify for free services.
Whether you own your home or rent, ERC can offer free home energy audits and weatherization assistance if you qualify as a low-income resident.
Anyone who can prove they currently receive assistance through LEAP, SNAP,TANF, AND, OAP, SSDI or SSI will automatically qualify without needing to show further proof of income.
