Missouri’s special program to make drafty homes warmer for Missouri’s poor people is in full swing. The natural resources department’s home weatherization program has been underway since 1978. It uses federal money to make the homes of people in poverty more energy efficient. $137,000 homes have been weatherized in the last two decades-plus. Project director Ron Wyse says there are still more than $200,000 additional households that are eligible. The program targets families that are at 150% of the federal poverty level, an increase from previous years so that more Missourians are eligible.
