The Weatherization Program is currently training staff for new positions within the Weatherization Program. The Weatherization Program is providing weatherization services to our 8-county area with 19 jobs in-progress with 10 dwellings ready for QCI post inspections. The Weatherization Program is fully staffed with an in-house crew, and we are utilizing contractors to perform QCI inspections, HVAC and Electrical work that we must perform to the dwellings receiving services. We look forward to the future of the new contract year of CKCAC’s weatherization program to progress and better serve our 8-county service area. With the BIL funding we have been allocated funding to purchase new vehicles and equipment with the opportunity to offer services to qualifying Multi-Family Projects/Units throughout our 8 county service area.


Our goal with weatherization is to continue to reduce energy waste and assure the health and safety of each client we serve through testing consisting of; aliening air and thermal boundaries, pressure diagnostics, heating system diagnostics, indoor air quality, and base load energy consumption diagnostics.
Central Kentucky Community Action Council Weatherization Program is fully staffed with a highly trained supporting and technical staff consisting of Josh Mattingly-Dwelling Needs Evaluator/Crew Leader, Tessa Hinton-Crew Leader, Mike Burden-Retrofit Installer, Andrew Salleng-Retrofit Installer, and Barbara Garrett-Weatherization Administrative Support Specialist. We would like to say a huge thank you to all Weatherization staff for their dedication for improving the quality of work and the dedication to ensure the health and safety of all the clients we serve.
