About the Program
The Dickinson Iron Community Services Agency (DICSA) coordinates a local weatherization program to assist income eligible households (home owners and renters) with reducing their heating costs. A computerized energy audit determines the type of measures to be addressed, then licensed and insured contractors complete the work.
In addition to the improvements made to the home, you will receive energy education from the housing staff of DICSA. The educational information will provide you with the ideas on how to keep your energy costs down all year.
Please read the following information and refer to the income guidelines, then consider how this program could benefit you. There are no costs involved and it is easy to get the help you need to save money all year round!

Then, when your name comes up on the call list, a DICSA representative will contact you to continue with the application process.
The application process requires you to gather documentation such as proof of income and home ownership, and come into the DICSA office for an appointment.
