PHOENIX, AZ — The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona was recently awarded $90,231 in weatherization grants by the Department of Energy (DOE).

The Energy Department’s Weatherization Assistance Program annually awards grants to states and Native American tribes to improve the energy efficiency of thousands of low-income households.

“This weatherization assistance grant will provide energy-saving home improvements this year to the 20 tribes of the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona,” said Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham. “Weatherization is a priority of President Bush, as outlined in his National Energy Plan. Weatherization reduces an average home’s energy cost by $218 each year.”

By improving the energy efficiency of homes, DOE’s Weatherization Assistance Program is designed to reduce the burden of energy costs for low-income Americans, especially households with elderly residents, people with disabilities, and children. The Inter Tribal Council’s grant will be administered by the Council office, located here.

For information regarding DOE’s programs, go to its Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Network website at www.eren.doe.gov/buildings.
