Our weatherization services help create a comfortable and safe environment for our clients to live in, while generating more disposable income from decreased utility and medical expenses.

Thousands of Western New York homeowners are now eligible for federal help in protecting their properties from the ravages of the region’s notorious winters, and it’s all thanks to the bipartisan infrastructure bill that Congress passed last year.
Toward the end of 2020, Supportive Services partnered with the Benchmark Group, the

project to make the towers more energy-efficient and the tenants more comfortable
during the winter months.
The Weatherization Assistance Program was established in 1976 by the Department of Energy, under Title IV of the Energy Conservation and Protection Act in attempt to cut down the energy usage, create a safe living environment and more disposable income for Low to Moderate Income (LMI) families, and be the foundation of a new industry to create jobs for American workers.
