    Weatherization Works!

    The Governor's Office of Energy has partnered with Nevada Housing Division (NHD) to provide the Home Energy Retrofit Opportunities for Seniors (HEROS) program. The program assists with reducing energy costs for Nevada seniors by improving the energy efficiency of their home. The program is provided at no cost to income qualified seniors who own their own home.

    GOE created the HEROS program and provides funding to NHD to administer it through a network of non-profit service provider agencies throughout the state.
