CHAPTER I: DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AND ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY
PART 100 LOW INCOME HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
SECTION 100.410 MINIMUM PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
Section 100.410 Minimum Program Requirements
a) No dwelling unit may be weatherized without documentation that the household and the dwelling unit is eligible as provided in Section 100.450.
b) Priority is to be assigned, in terms of scheduling weatherization work, as follows:
1) to the elderly, the disabled, and families with small children (5 and under); and
2) households with the lowest incomes and highest utility bills.
c) The financial assistance provided under this Subpart will be used as follows:
1) by increasing the funds available for IHWAP, which will provide additional weatherization assistance identical to that provided by the DOE and the HHS, and shall be promulgated annually by the Department no later than the beginning of the IHWAP Program year, as specified in 10 CFR 440.18(c) (1995); and
2) by expanding the State's currently allowable weatherization measures and including heating system tune up, repair, and retrofit measures to increase the efficiency of the furnace or replacement of the furnace.
d) Whenever other federal, State, local or privately funded programs are available in the county to provide weatherization assistance activities specified in Section 100.420, the local administering agency shall seek to coordinate those activities with those funded by HHS. Such coordination will seek to avoid duplication of services and encourage joint funding of weatherization projects.
e) No dwelling unit may be reported to the Department as complete until a local administering agency has performed a final inspection certifying that work has been completed in an acceptable manner and in accordance with the work order issued as a result of the agency's audit/assessment. The work has been completed in an acceptable manner if there is no air infiltration or general heat waste; the attic, sidewalls, or crawl spaces have been insulated and/or ventilated; or storm windows and doors have been installed. The local administering agency is subject to suspension and/or termination of funds if it reports a dwelling unit as completed without performing a final inspection.
