The Metro Home Improvement Program

I was out meeting people in my community the other day and a resident asked me if there was a place where they could get some "help" in replacing old windows that were drafty. We went looking and found the Metro Home Improvement Program that serves several metro communities. Here Christine Gordon, the coordinator of the program based out of West Des Moines, talks about how it can help homeowners, how the program is structured, who qualifies, how much money can be allocated and how to make application online or by phone at 515-273-0770. What a great program for those who qualify. Listen and pass this along?
