Window Replacement Grants-Free Grants and Support For Home Improvement
Every house requires well-equipped windows for increased energy efficiency and comfortable dwelling experience. Windows can save a minimum of 10-20 percent of heating costs and needs to be replaced if it’s broken or does not serve the purpose. Conduction of air through panes, infiltrating cold air through the window edges and chilly windowpanes curtail the heat so it needs to be replaced. 



 
Paying for the window replacement expenses can be unaffordable for many low-income families having the dearth of funds. To assist them grants are disbursed by the federal government, nonprofits, state governments and local agencies. Applicants can now apply for window replacement types like inert gas-filled windows, double- and triple-pane windows and coated windows.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) together have initiated a program-Energy Star under which homeowners may avail up to $1,500 in tax credits. The initiative promotes more energy efficient homes by providing incentives in the form of tax savings for the homeowners who replace windows either through a contractor or DIY.
 
Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program
The Department of Housing and Urban Development sponsors the SHOP, granting amount worth $15,000. Monetarily deprived families who are engaged in constructing their own homes are eligible for the program to replace their windows. The grant amount is awarded to national and regional nonprofits engaged in house building work for low-income families and later granted to eligible applicants.
 
High Energy Cost Grant Program
 
Administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the High Energy Cost Grant Program encourages renewable energy development work and energy efficiency services in rural sectors. Grants are disbursed to residential units, local and state government, community agencies and nonprofits. Elected applicants need to demonstrate the utility of the grant program for the community. Contact the state or local government for window replacement.
State Grants
 
Almost every state offers grants for home energy efficiency and home repair work like window replacement. Funding opportunities and free services are also available from local utility companies. Assistance programs like subsidized rates for replacing of windows, discounts, rebates for installing energy efficient windows are available from utility companies.
 
You may seek assistance from nonprofits like Salvation Family Emergency Services, Habitat for Humanity, Community Action Agencies or look for forgivable home repair loans in your state.
