ACTION-Housing is the local program administrator for the Homeowners Energy Efficiency Loan Program, a Loan Program run by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency.  This loan is for people who already receive our Weatherization Assistant Program services or who have taken advantage of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, but still would like to make energy efficiency modifications to their homes.  The program makes available between $1,000 and $10,000 at the low fixed rate of 1% for the ten year term, with no repayment penalties.  Eligible repairs include: air sealing, insulation and ductwork; energy efficient windows and doors; energy efficient heating or cooling system repairs or replacements; and roof repairs and replacements.  Some repairs that permit weatherization/LIURP work to take place (ex., knob & tube wiring replacement).
