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 Selection
In June 2022, DEEP announced the selection of a Program Operator for the Statewide Weatherization Barrier Remediation Program, partnering with the nationally recognized non-profit International Center for Appropriate and Sustainable Technology (ICAST).
