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.
