On December 30, 2021, severe winds damaged manufactured homes throughout Boulder, leaving occupants vulnerable to rising energy costs and future weather events. The Marshall Fire and high winds, called Straight Line Winds, were declared a disaster by the federal government the following day (DR4634). Last year, Boulder voters authorized Climate Tax dollars to help households make energy efficiency and climate resilience improvements to their homes.
The city has launched a new grant program to help community members whose homes were impacted by the high winds event repair damage and identify potential energy efficiency improvements.
This grant program is currently only for City of Boulder manufactured homes. For now, please do not apply if your manufactured home is located outside of city of Boulder limits. This program will be expanded to include homes in incorporated Boulder County at a future date.
