Set up a home assessment

Once your application has been reviewed, an energy specialist will contact you to schedule an assessment of your home. During the visit, the specialist will determine if your home qualifies for the program and, if so, the improvements to be made. At this time, you’ll also need to provide proof of household income such as check stubs, social security, bank statements or other legal proof of income. Proof of income is not required if you can provide documents proving participation in one of the following programs:

  • Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance
  • CalFresh Benefits (federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP and formerly known as Food Stamps)
  • Healthy Families Category A & B
  • Head Start Income Eligible (Tribal Only)
  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • Medicaid/MediCal
  • National School Lunch Program (NSL)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Women, Infant, and Children Program (WIC)

If you would like to speak to a program specialist, please call 1-800-933-9555.
