As we navigate through the chill of February, we at Central Kentucky Community Action Council (CKCAC) are committed to ensuring the safety and comfort of all individuals and families in our community. With temperatures dropping, it’s crucial to address the importance of weatherization to keep homes warm and energy efficient.
Community Assistance Programs:
CKCAC understands that financial constraints may hinder access to weatherization services. Our agency offers various assistance programs to support eligible individuals and families in improving their home’s energy efficiency:
  • Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP): LIHEAP provides financial assistance to eligible households for heating and cooling expenses, including weatherization services.
  • Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP): WAP offers free weatherization services to income-qualified households, helping reduce energy costs and improve home comfort. CKCAC will work to reduce energy waste and assure the health and safety of each client we serve. Trained technicians can help qualifying low-income families improve the overall energy efficiency of their homes, saving money and enhancing the quality of life for residents.
  • Utility Bill Payment Assistance: Our agency collaborates with utility providers to offer payment assistance programs, helping alleviate the burden of high energy bills.
Stay Informed and Prepared:
As winter weather persists, staying informed and prepared is crucial. Keep abreast of weather forecasts and take proactive measures to safeguard your home and family from the cold. In case of emergencies or weather-related concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to local authorities for assistance.
