Weatherization Assistance Program

Weatherization Works!


 Flyer - Weatherization Assistance Program

The low-income Home Weatherization Assistance Program is a FREE service funded by the Federal Department of Energy (DOE) and administered by the Michigan Department of Human Services (DHS). The program provides free energy conservation services for eligible low-income households. DHS contracts with Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA) to operate the program. The Agency determines applicant eligibility, performs the necessary inspections and contracts with qualified, licensed and insured private contractors to complete the work. Their services reduce energy use and lower utility bills, thus creating more self sufficient households.

Energy savings services may include:

  • Combustion appliance testing

  • Installing ceiling insulation/ventilation

  • Sidewall and floor insulation

  • Interior sealing of major cold-air infiltration areas, utilizing blower door technology


  • Families and individuals who are interested in having their home weatherized must meet current federal income guidelines, which includes the gross income of everyone residing in the home at the time of application

  • Recipients of FIP, SSI or SDA who have received benefits during any part of the past twelve months are automatically eligible

  • Applications must be residents of Oakland or Livingston County

How to Apply

  • You must contact OLHSA to apply for services

  • All applicants must provide proof of income for the previous three months

  • Proof of income could include one or more of the following items:

  • "Award" letter from Social Security

  • Pay stubs with year to date totals

  • Letter from applicant’s employer

  • Unemployment check stubs

  • Most current W-2 or 1040 tax statement

Homeowner must provide one of the following pieces of documentation:

  • Recorded deed with name and address

  • Recorded land contract

Mobile home owner must provide:

  • Title with applicant’s name

Renters must have landlord:
