Homeowners Energy Efficiency Loan Program (HEELP)

The Homeowners Energy Efficiency Loan Program (HEELP) offers loans between $1,000 and $10,000 for specific energy efficiency repairs at a fixed-rate of one percent (1%) for ten years with no prepayment penalties.

HEELP loans are more affordable than you may think: $44 per month for a $5,000 loan or $88 per month for a $10,000 loan. With such affordable payments, now you can make those much needed energy efficiency repairs.

The specific uses for the HEELP funds are:

  • Air sealing, insulation and ductwork
  • Energy efficient windows and doors
  • Energy efficient heating or cooling system repairs or replacements
  • Roof replacements

The HEELP income limits are listed in the chart below.
