If anyone is interested in getting free weatherization done on their home, the State of Michigan is offering grants to home owners throughout the entire state.

Because of stimulus money, the State is increasing the money spent per home and the number of homes serviced per year while loosening the requirements of income levels for home owners.

SE Michigan is broken down into the

City of Detroit, 313.852.5628

Wayne County, check out waynecounty.com

Wayne Metro Community Action Agency (Wayne County), 734.246.2280

Macomb County CSA 586.469.6999

Community Action Agency of St. Clair County, 810.982.8541

Oakland/Livingston HSA, 248.209.2600

Genesee County Community ARD, 810.232.2185

Washtenaw County ET&CSG, 734.544.6850

Monroe County Opportunity Program, 734.544.6850

If anyone needs contact info for any other part of Michigan, just ask and I have the info.

Good luck and hopefully next winter, we'll have a lot of people with smaller heating bills.

Do you work for the State, or any of the CAA's? I'm trying to find out how to get trained and certified as a weatherization inspector.

No, I am a contractor with some of the programs.

Just trying to spread the word. I'm not sure many people know about the programs. Below are two websites that might help you. I do know that you are going to need a blower door testing machine(approx $2000.00) and a thermal imaging machine (approx $6500.00 to $9000.00) as minimums to get started.

Hopefully this helps you.

Hockeycox1966,

Thanks for the info. I read about this earlier but forgot to keep the article for the phone numbers. I'm in desparate need of a new roof and gutters and I don't have that kind of money.
