Share of Nebraska's Federal Stimulus Money for Energy Efficiency

By  | 

Federal officials say Nebraska will receive more than $72 million to support energy efficiency.

The money is part of the federal government's $8 billion stimulus package for energy-saving projects nationwide.

More than $41 million of Nebraska's cut will help residents weatherproof their homes, including adding more insulation and modernizing heating and air-conditioning equipment.

It will be available to families making up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level, or about $44,000 a year for a family of four.
