Weatherization Assistance

The Income-Qualifying Weatherization program is designed to help qualifying residential SVEC members save energy and money while making homes more comfortable, safe and healthy. This no-cost program is administered by Community Housing Partners (CHP) Energy Solutions and uses federal Weatherization Assistance Program funding and supplemental funds from Old Dominion Electric Cooperative to deliver no-cost energy efficiency services to income-qualifying households.

Improvements may include but are not limited to:

  • Home energy audit
  • Health & safety check
  • LEDs
  • Attic, floor and sidewall insulation
  • Water tank wrap and hot water pipe insulation
  • Whole-house air sealing
  • Duct sealing
  • Tune-ups to heating & cooling systems


Household income limits are set by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development with households qualifying automatically if they receive Supplemental Security Income, TANF or fuel/energy assistance. Owner-occupied, rental and mobile homes with SVEC service are all eligible.

Multi-family apartment housing is also eligible for the federal Weatherization Assistance Program when the units are individually metered and 66% of residents meet income-qualifying guidelines, or if the property is HUD-DOE approved. Apartment property manager and owners are encouraged to inquire by calling a CHP Customer Care Specialist at 888-229-3714.
