Weatherization Barrier Remediation

For many Connecticut households, weatherization is the key to maintaining comfortable living conditions while keeping energy bills low. However, too many households across the state are prevented from weatherizing their homes due to health and safety hazards such as mold and asbestos. 


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. Addressing these barriers improves the health and safety of homes and allows for the installation of measures that reduce energy use.  

Statewide Program Operator Request for Proposals (RFP)

DEEP is seeking a qualified Program Operator to administer a new Weatherization Barriers Mitigation Program. The selected Program Operator will play an important role in connecting low-income families to mitigation services that will improve the health and saf
ety of their homes and weatherization programs that make their homes more comfortable and their energy bills more affordable.
