assistance

We realize that some families may need additional financial assistance. For income-qualified and low-income residents, we offer an Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program (City of Charlottesville homeowners) and Weatherization Assistance Program (Central Virginia).

Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR

Through the generosity of the City of Charlottesville, LEAP is also able to offer Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR. This program provides up to $5000 in energy efficiency improvements for low income City residents who own their homes.

Thanks in part to the success of this work in recent years, in 2012 the City of Charlottesville’s Neighborhood Development Services decided that all City rehab jobs should be Home Performance with ENERGY STAR projects.

The money available is limited, and residents can apply on a first-come first-served basis. Income qualifications are in the table below, and income verification is required. Please contact LEAP for more information.

Weatherization

Depending on your income level, you may be eligible for the Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program. This free program helps homeowners weatherize and perform  other energy efficiency measures.
