DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - A Durango nonprofit agency says its weatherization-assistance program is being taken away.
The Four Corners Office for Resource Efficiency says cuts in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy has forced the Colorado Energy Office to consolidate regional offices for the program.
According to the Durango Herald, the program in western Colorado will be transferred to Grand Junction, which will oversee the program in 12 Western Slope counties.
Over the past three years, the Durango agency has subsidized weatherization of 588 homes for low-income residents.
