The Texas Department Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) is going to receive between $240-350 million for weatherization of homes in Texas as part of the recent federal stimulus package. This money will be distributed in San Antonio through the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG). Local contractors who are seeing a reduction in work and who are qualified to do weatherization will be able to apply for jobs through AACOG. In addition, homeowners making up to 200% of the poverty level will qualify for up to $6,500 to weatherize their home, and may apply through AACOG.
Hopefully, these funds will serve an existing need, reduce energy consumption in the long run, and also assist in immediate job creation in our community.
