Weatherization is linked to the location, not the occupant. If the client changes residences, moving into a home not previously weatherized, the new home is eligible for weatherization.
Windows and doors are NEVER replaced.
Weatherization is designed to make the home more energy efficient and comfortable. It does not include repairs such as plumbing, roofs, or floors.
We DO NOT keep the deed to your home after we weatherize it nor will we ever ask for it.
Weatherization can be performed on mobile homes as well.
You must complete an application for weatherization, AND have your landlord complete a Landlord Permission Form. We must have permission from the owner for you to be eligible for weatherization services.
CVCAA serves fourteen counties with the weatherization program: Coke, Coleman, Concho, Crockett, Irion, Kimble, McCulloch, Menard, Reagan, Runnels, Schleicher, Sterling, Sutton and Tom Green.

Our tax preparation program serves all counties.
This program is designed to assist an individual or family in transitioning out of poverty. A case manager is assigned to you and together you work on a self-sufficiency plan to help you succeed.
You will be eligible to receive $100 a month in assistance. The $100 can be used for food or gas monthly. There are also incentives for school related expenses.
The program targets individuals or families that can reach self-sufficiency within a specified time period.
You must first income qualify (the income guideline is lower than for utility assistance) and second have a plan to increase your income and transition out of poverty. You can call the agency at (325) 653-2411 or email email@example.com to find out more.
You are required to meet with your case manager once a month and work together to create goals and a self-sufficiency plan. Once these goals are established, your case manager will serve as your coach and assist you in reaching them.
