Emerald Cities Collaborative has been awarded a $1 million grant from the Department of Energy to launch a weatherization pilot program. The pilot program, Emerald Connections, will test a community-centered approach to weatherization in one community within Washington state.
Emerald Connections will be launched in one hard-to-reach community. They will contract with a community-based organization to develop and implement outreach, education and programming within the selected community. They will also partner with and may provide funding for a local weatherization agency to implement the weatherization measures for the pilot.
The pilot will include funding the cost of home repairs, energy efficiency, home electrification, and healthy homes interventions.
For more information on the program Emerald Cities Collaborative will be hosting an informational webinar on November 10th at noon. Register here to learn more.
