Community Development

Greening the Community.
The Las Vegas Urban League’s Community Development Program enables North Las Vegas and rural Clark County low-income residents to reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient at no cost. Government funds are used to improve the energy performance of homes for needy residents using the most advanced technologies and testing protocols available in the housing industry. These FREE services allow North Las Vegas and rural Clark County residents to achieve lower utility bills thus allowing for more flexible income.

What does “weatherizing” mean?
When you improve the enclosure around your home, you are weatherizing. This includes sealing leaks around windows and doors, solar screens and other energy efficient improvements. This “blanket” of warmth adds protection all around your home and can significantly reduce your energy use. The benefits of weatherizing are:
• Warmer in the winter, by trapping the heat in. • Cooler in the summer, by blocking the heat and keeping the sun’s rays out. • Quieter, by providing a buffer from the sounds outside your home. • More energy efficient, by reducing the amount of energy required to keep you comfortable. And a much lower utility bill every month, which means more money back into your pocket!
