MFA operates the NM Energy$mart Program “NME$ Program”, a Weatherization Assistance Program funded by DOE and other funding sources through which service providers weatherize homes for income-eligible homeowners, renters and multifamily development owners. The mission of the WAP program is to reduce energy costs for low-income families, particularly for the elderly, people with disabilities and young children, by improving the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety. The Program uses the most advanced technologies and testing protocols available in the housing industry. In addition to the comfort, health benefits and energy savings for the household, the energy conservation resulting from the efforts of state and local agencies helps our country reduce its dependence on foreign oil and our carbon footprint.
MFA staff looks forward to receiving the offeror’s Request for Proposals.
