Statewide Weatherization Barrier Remediation Program Operator

The Bureau of Energy and Technology Policy is seeking a qualified Program Operator(s), through a competitive RFP, for a new Weatherization Barrier Remediation Program.

The purpose of the Weatherization Barrier Remediation Program is to address health and safety issues, such as mold and asbestos, that prevent the completion of residential weatherization and energy efficiency measures. Energy efficiency intervention coupled with health and safety barrier remediation not only provides a path to lower household energy costs and energy burdens but can also generate non-energy benefits that improve physical and social determinants of health, population health, and social equity — by reducing excess housing and energy burdens experienced by low income households. 

DEEP intends to select the most qualified Program Operator(s) for 2022 - 2024 (January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2024). Following successful execution of a contract with DEEP, the Program Operator(s) chosen through this RFP will begin work in early 2022 to establish the Program. The Program will begin accepting applications April 1, 2022, for a nine-month active program during 2022 and 12-month programs thereafter in 2023-2024.   

Contract periods may be longer or shorter, depending on the ability to meet program needs and metrics, and federal grant funding cycles. Demonstrated capacity to provide services on a long-term and ongoing basis is looked upon favorably in the review process to ensure continuity of services between grant cycles.
