Given the need to hire and train new staff, this wasn’t an easy accomplishment. SCCAP and other Indiana organizations didn’t get approval to spend these stimulus act funds until the last week of August.
Our Weatherization staff (pictured above) worked extremely hard to exceed its goal, required by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, of 36 homes in Monroe County to receive energy efficiency improvements by the end of November. From what we’ve heard, SCCAP was one of just four of the 30 Indiana organizations that received Recovery Act Weatherization funds to meet its Nov. 30 goal.
Great job, SCCAP Weatherization staff! You’ve still got a tough job ahead with a total of 145 homes to be weatherized with Recovery Act funds by the end of May, but we know you can do it.
