DOE awarded $9.9 million in weatherization assistance funds to Minnesota on May 7th. The funds will be used to improve the energy efficiency of the homes of low-income families in the state. For every dollar spent, DOE's Weatherization Assistance Program returns $1.80 in energy savings over the life of the weatherized home, based on recent energy prices. See the DOE press release.
