GREENSBORO -- Thousands of dollars in home improvements are up for grabs in Greensboro. That's the message city officials are taking to the streets.
BetterBuildings for Greensboro is a federally funded program aimed at helping homeowners install upgrades to help save 10 to 50 percent in energy costs.
"For households that qualify for the grant component of our program, the city of Greensboro pays directly for the energy upgrades installed in those homes," said Barbara Harris, the development division manager. "For households above our income thresholds, they install the upgrades and they get rebates from our program."
As part of the neighborhood sweep, city leaders will walk door to door passing along information on the program. The $5 million BetterBuildings grant period ends next May.
