Weatherization and ATMOS Energy provide benefits to eligible households in the form of energy conservation improvements to the dwelling to reduce energy costs and give the occupants a safer and healthier environment. Our program is a proud partner of the Kentucky Housing Corporation.
To qualify, the annual household income must be at or below 200% of the federal income guidelines for the current year. Individuals who own their home or rent may be eligible for weatherization assistance. Single family homes, multi-family homes and mobile homes may be weatherized.

The benefits are designed to reduce heating costs by making the dwelling more energy efficient, and to provide a healthier, safer and more comfortable environment. Heating systems are also evaluated for safety, energy efficiency, fuel leaks and carbon monoxide.
Studies have shown that a household saves approximately $400-$600 annually in energy costs.
