Public hearing Thursday on Weatherization funding for SCCAP and other organizations

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority will hold a public hearing this Thursday, May 28, to take comments on the selection and capacity of the subgrantees IHCDA has chosen to implement the state’s Weatherization Assistance Program.

These subgrantees are slated to receive funds created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to stimulate the national economy.

The public hearing will be held at 11 a.m. at the IHCDA office at 30 Meridian Street in Indianapolis.

The South Central Community Action Program is one of the grantees the state has tentatively approved for funding. In the IHCDA state plan that was made public last week, SCCAP was approved to receive $899,373 in stimulus funds to provide weatherization of homes in Monroe County.

SCCAP had applied for a total of $2,613,105 to provide weatherization in Monroe, Brown, Owen and Morgan counties, but the state plan awarded the funding for Brown, Owen and Morgan counties to other organizations.

Weatherization is a program that helps low-income families to prepare their homes against the elements. It allows weather stripping, caulking, insulating, repair and replacement of doors, windows and furnaces, etc. to keeps families more comfortable while lowering their heating costs.
