Weatherization Relief Assistance Program

The Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City to help Wyandotte County homeowners decrease energy costs and improve the efficiency of their home. If you are a Wyandotte County homeowner and a BPU customer, you may be eligible for a free home improvement project to protect from the sun, rain, wind, or freezing temperatures.

Qualified projects are completed at no cost to the homeowner, outside of a $25 application fee. BPU will provide participants with six CLF light bulbs when the project is completed.

Typical projects might include:

  • Adding insulation
  • Upgrading windows and doors for efficiency
  • Sealing air leaks

Funding is limited, applications will be accepted until December 2024 or until $120,000 in assistance is reached.
