Colorado Secures $32 Million in Recovery Funds for Weatherization Work

Colorado will receive nearly $32 million in stimulus money to help weatherize more than 10,000 homes.

The money will be used for energy audits, insulation and the instillation of high efficiency appliances in income qualified houses, as well as other improvements.

The work is intended to cut energy costs to these homes. The state will receive almost $40 million more in stimulus funding after meeting specific reporting, oversight and accountability milestones required by the recovery act.

The state hopes to weatherize 10 thousand homes in the next three years.
