JEFFERSON CITY — Stimulus funds are being put to work weatherizing the homes of around 21,000 low income Missouri families.
Missouri has received $128 million in federal stimulus money to make homes more energy-efficient. Eligibility was recently expanded, so people who earn less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level can apply. That means a family of four that makes less than $44,100 annually is eligible.
The funds go to 16 consumer advocacy agencies around the state who weatherize the homes of low-income residents.
