Once again this quarter, the SCCAP Weatherization Department has exceeded its goal for the number of homes it has weatherized using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.
This is the second quarter of the second round of ARRA weatherization funding. The assigned goal was 117 homes this quarter. SCCAP had made energy efficiency improvements to 123 homes in Brown, Monroe and Owen counties as of this morning.
Great job, Weatherization staff!!
This has also been a very busy time for the SCCAP Energy Assistance Program. SCCAP has approved 2,357 families for energy assistance in its 2010 winter program, including 817 who received additional crisis assistance.
Those numbers mean that SCCAP has already gone though just over 50 percent of its allotted funds for the entire winter, meaning the agency may run out of funds before the scheduled end of the winter program.
