Owning a home can be challenging. Paying for energy bills, mortgages, and physical maintenance can leave homeowners in a difficult financial situation. That's why the Community Conservation Corps provides a free, preventive service to decrease energy bills and make homes safer. Each home is thoroughly checked by an auditor using highly accurate tools in order to quickly identify what it may need. A construction crew assisted by volunteers from Furman and Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County performs the weatherization retrofits.

In order to receive weatherization assistance, residents must:

  • Live in and own their home
  • Reside in Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, or Cherokee County
  • Have homeowner's insurance
  • Be a Piedmont Natural Gas customer (current requirement; may change in the future)
  • Have family income at or below the following amounts:
