Weatherization and repair grants available for Westway homes

The City of Federal Way is encouraging eligible homeowners in the Westway neighborhood to apply for weatherization and home repair grants. A limited number of funds are available for low-income homeowners, and applications are currently being accepted.

Interested Westway homeowners can apply for major health and life safety repairs to homes, as well as weatherization and energy efficiency retrofits, or building preservation measures, including windows and siding.

Eligibility requirements include:

  • Applicant must live within the Westway neighborhood and be the property’s legal owner
  • Household income must be at or below 80% of King County median income ($64,200 for a family of four)
  • Applicant must not have liquid assets exceeding $30,000

Funding for the Westway housing repair program comes from the City of Federal Way’s Community Development Block Grant allocation, a federally-funded community development program. Applications and renovation work are administered and completed by the King County Housing Repair Program and Habitat for Humanity.

To apply or for more information call Habitat for Humanity at 206.292.5240, ext. 118.
