Weatherization assistance available


Low-income families in a 10-parish area may be in line to receive help through a Weatherization Assistance Program administered by the DeSoto Parish Police Jury/Office of Community Services.

Applications are now being accepted in Bienville, Bossier, Claiborne, DeSoto, Morehouse, Natchitoches, Red River, Sabine, Union and Webster parishes.

Priority for the program is given to the elderly, disabled and to homes with children. Weatherization assistance is a free service funded by the U.S. Dept. of Energy. Weatherization assistance makes homes energy efficient and is not a home improvement or repair program.

Work performed on a home might include attic and/or wall insulation, air sealing, caulking and measures targeting health and safety. To qualify for services, both the household income and dwelling must meet program guidelines.

To request an application, please contact the DeSoto Parish Police Jury/Office of Community Services Weatherization Assistance Program at 318-872-0880, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Federal regulations prevent discrimination of any kind in deliverance of service.
