2022-23 Waukesha Home Upgrade Program

Thanks to the efforts of the Wisconsin Public Service Commission, Revitalize Milwaukee, City of Waukesha, Inflation Reduction Act and others, Green Homeowners United is proud to assist local residents in accessing a limited number of grants and no-interest loans to upgrade the homes of moderate income: seniors (over 60), people with disabilities and veterans to help reduce energy bill burdens.

These funds can include:

  • Insulating attics & basements

  • Upgrading windows or heating systems

  • HVAC tune ups and smart thermostats

  • Safety and health home improvements

  • Water & electricity saving improvements

  • And sometimes more!

Who is Eligible?

Three ways to qualify for upgrades

Option 1 income limits

This program is designed to help those experiencing high utility bills have a way to reduce them by making the home more energy efficient. 9 out of 10 attics are estimated to be under-insulated, and too many homes are drafty, leaking warm air out in the winter and allowing humid air in the summer.  This impacts our energy bills, our planet and residents' health.

Option 1 - if you are a resident of Waukesha and you are either over 60 years of age OR have a documented disability (in some cases veteran status also qualifies you. Additionally, you must be under the income limits listed below

  • Up to $8,400 grant to insulate attic and make the house less drafty. Possible additional grant for minor home repairs

  • $25,000 financing at 0% interest for basement insulation, ENERGY STAR triple pane windows and/or heating system upgrades. Generally not needed to be paid back until the home is sold.

Option 2 -if you are a resident of the City of Waukesha that earns more than the amount above but LESS than the following, you may qualify for 0% interest financing through the City of Waukesha over 10 years for home improvements.

What if I am above that income? (Option 3)

We believe that all homes can and should be upgraded to be energy efficient. Both for the homeowner as well as the planet. While our grant is focused on those mentioned above, Green Homeowners United can help you navigate other options
