NMCAA Gets Weatherization Subgrant

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, - The Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Energy has issued $41,882 in weatherization subgrant funds to the Northeast Missouri Community Action Agency to help low income Missourians reduce home energy costs.

The Northeast Missouri Community Action Agency, or NMCAA, is one of 18 Missouri agencies that implement the state’s Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program, enabling low-income Missouri families to permanently reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient. The elderly, physically disadvantaged and families with children are program priorities. Since the program began in 1978, weatherization funds have helped to weatherize more than 155,000 Missouri homes. NMCAA serves five northeastern Missouri counties: Adair, Clark, Knox, Schuyler, and Scotland.

The subgrants to NMCAA include $32,611 in funding allocated under a service area agreement with AmerenUE and $9,271 from Atmos Gas. This funding is provided through agreements made in rate adjustment cases by Missouri utilities to weatherize additional homes in their service areas.
