ACTION-Housing operates the Weatherization Assistance Program for the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Washington, and Greene counties. The Weatherization Assistance Program is a federally-funded program that provides eligible homeowners and renters with free-of-charge weatherization services, which refers to the process of reducing the amount of air infiltration into and out of the home. This process should improve energy efficiency, reduce heating and electric bills, and make the home a more comfortable place to live. In 2011, we spent over $10 million to weatherize 1,990 households. No liens or encumbrances are ever placed against the property.

To be eligible for the program, you must:

  • Meet certain income eligibility requirements (see table below)
  • Live in a City of Pittsburgh Ward, Allegheny County, or Washington or Greene counties.
  • Have lived in your home for three months and be able to provide us with three months of utility bills.
  • If you do not own your home, you must have the approval of the home owner to seek weatherization services.
  • Complete the entire weatherization application.
  • Be willing to allow us to perform our services on the property as we deem necessary.
