to Summary by DSIRE
City of Tallahassee Utilities offers two different grants that encourage low-income residents to improve the energy efficiency of homes. Both programs require a free home energy audit to be conducted in order to determine the eligibility of the applicant. Applicants must also fit within the qualifying income levels detailed on the web site.
The Ceiling Insulation Grant is available to utility customers in both owner-occupied and rental housing. Grants of up to $500 are available for extra ceiling insulation where the existing level is deficient. The program's target insulation levels are R-38 for homes heated with gas, and R-49 for electrically heated homes. The HVAC Repair Grant is available to low-income residents living in owner-occupied homes, including mobile homes. It provides grants of up to $500 to clean evaporator coils, repair refrigerant, hot water and duct leaks, and other HVAC efficiency improvements.
The City of Tallahassee offers the Code Enforcement Rehabilitation Grant ($2,500), which does not exclusively fund energy efficiency, but could contribute to the reduction of energy usage within a home. Measures like changing out inoperable heating systems and water heaters or replacing broken windows could be funded by this grant and could improve a home's energy efficiency.
