I don't have access to the text of the article, but here's a little from the web page of the agency handing out grants to help you weatherize your home. The article said CACAA will pay for door and window replacement, calking, hot water heater wraps, and various types of improvements, even if you are renting! http://www.cacaainc.org/services/wap.htm Weatherization Assistance Programs (WAP / WAP-LIHEAP) The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)and Weatherization Assistance Program - Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (WAP/LIHEAP) are funded through the U.S. Department of Energy and the State of Florida . The Florida Department of Community Affairs allocates the DOE funds to local CAA and other agencies. Both programs assist low-income families with improving the conditions of their homes by either making energy efficiency improvement or making emergency home repairs. During the year, $98,612 was provided to 45 homes to help reduce energy costs and improve the comfort and quality of life for low-income residents of Franklin , Gadsden and Gulf Counties . The majority of low-income residents served were elderly. These are the only programs which allow repairs to be made to mobile homes and renter-occupied units (with owner agreement), where a majority of our poorest families live.
