There is a new opportunity for income eligible residents. It was recently brought to the Borough's attention that PROCEED, Inc. is the agency designated by the State to administer the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) in Somerset County. Participants in the program can qualify for up to $7,200 in weatherization improvements and $7,200 in heating and cooling system replacement in addition to funds to re-mediate health and safety concerns. The funding can be stacked for a total near $20,000 in assistance.
There are also opportunities for qualifying, affordable, multifamily projects looking to reduce energy consumption. There is a 50% match for rental units, however the landlord is allowed to leverage the cost of recent repairs toward fulfilling that match obligation.
This program does not require a lien or a deed restriction of any kind. The only issue may be that PROCEED requires the submission of past and future energy usage for reporting and performance measurement purposes.
Please find PROCEED’s flyer HERE and a link to their website HERE.
