All contractors interested in pre-qualifying as a contractor for the RPC’s Illinois Home Weatherization Assistance Program (IHWAP) must call our office at 217-819-4119 by September 13, 2021, to register their company name. The purpose of this meeting is to explain IHWAP and for pre-qualification application materials to be completed by the contractor. All contractors who attend will be given a contractor pre-qualification application, labor specification list, and sample project work order. All pre-qualification application materials are due by 9am on Monday, September 27, 2021, at the RPC’s office. Only those attending the meeting will qualify for consideration. Applications will be evaluated and scored, and the contractor(s) whose qualifications are most advantageous for IHWAP and the RPC will be pre-qualified as contractors for the program.
Contractors for IHWAP provide services such as installation of weather-stripping, caulking, insulation, air sealing, heating system repair and replacement, water heater replacement, and minor structural, plumbing, and electrical repairs. Further details will be provided at the meeting. Please remember to call 217-819-4119 and let us know if you will attend the meeting.
