Great info Suzanne. For assistance in Jackson, TN Southwest Human Resource Agency has a weatherization Assistance Program. This program assists low-income households in their efforts to reduce energy costs and upgrade livability standards by installing weatherization measures to their home. This is available to homeowners and renters. The program is open for enrollment all year, with applicants being awarded points which determine their place on our waiting list in each county. Applicants must have a household income below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. This program is funded by the Department of Energy through the Tennessee Department of Human Services.
