Greater Bergen Community Action, Inc. (GBCA) current has NO WAITING LIST for its Weatherization Assistance Program.
Once a resident is deemed eligible, its Weatherization Department will perform a home energy audit to assess the weatherization needs of the home. The services provided are quite extensive, including things like weather stripping, new windows, insulation, energy efficient refrigerators, even a new furnace and more. While there is an income limit of 200% of the poverty level ($47,700 for a family of four), households where a member receives TANF, SSI (Supplementary Security Income), Food Stamps or an Adoption Subsidy are deemed to be Categorically Eligible. Categorical eligibility means that households are determined to be eligible despite a total household income which may exceed the income guidelines.
Both homeowners and renters may qualify.
