Income, housing and health: Poverty in the United States through the prism of residential energy efficiency programs

Image of a man working to weatherize a home.

Weatherization programs could be improved by expanding eligibility for inclusion beyond income and by collaborating with the healthcare and public health sectors to identify those households most in need of their services.

Weatherization has financial benefits for households, such as improving the ability of households to afford their energy bills, and for society as improved health reduces health care costs.
