Low-Income Energy Efficiency
- Neighborhood Weatherization
The program is made possible through a partnership with Tampa Hillsborough Action Plan (THAP), a non-profit agency that distributes Tampa Electric- provided energy-saving kits at no cost. To qualify, your total household income may not be more than 200 percent above the national poverty level. Preference is given to elderly (60 years-plus) or physically disabled residents, families with children under 12 and households with a high energy burden (repeated high utility bills). Call THAP for more information: 813-626-4926.
- In 1992 the Florida legislature passed the William E. Sadowski Affordable Housing Act. Funding comes from a portion of documentary stamp taxes on deeds and supports two programs that supplement the state's WAP: State Housing Initiatives Partnership, which funds weatherization measures; and the Low-Income Emergency Home Repair Program, which funds emergency and energy-related home repairs.
