Preparing for Michigan’s often unpredictable weather can cost a fortune. Do you have a leaky roof? Does your home have a draft during the winter months? Is your home in need of some repairs as the temperature starts to drop?

FREE home improvements may include:
- Furnace or boiler tune-up, to help your heating system run more efficiently and last longer
- High efficiency furnace replacement
- Installation of new energy-saving programmable thermostat
Visit Washtenaw County’s website to see if you qualify. Eligibility for LIHEAP, FAP, SSI, SER, TANF, WAP, THAW, or WIC establishes automatic eligibility. Renters must obtain landlord approval.
