SAN ANTONIO -- The Alamo Area Council of Governments says more than $1 Million in home repairs is up for grabs and now it's just looking for households that can use it.

AACOG's Weatherization Assistance Program is designed for households that want to make their homes more energy efficient, but can't afford to. As long as applicants meet certain requirements, they can get new insulation for their homes and even new appliances.

"Last year we assisted 177 households. Those were single family homes. We spent over $1.5 million in the AACOG region," said Alicia Avila-Peñalver.

AACOG says some homeowners have seen their electricity bills cut in half. Right now, more than $1 Million is available for Bexar County area residents and it has to be distributed by the end of the year.
