The Greater Bergen Weatherization Assistance Program is Available to North Arlington Residents


Greater Bergen Community Action, Inc. (GBCA) which is headquartered in Hackensack, is a 501 (C) 3 Non-profit, and is Bergen County’s designated anti-poverty agency.

We currently have NO WAITING LIST for our Weatherization Assistance Program.  Once a resident is deemed eligible, our Weatherization Department will perform a home energy audit to assess the weatherization needs of the home.   The services we can provide under this are quite extensive, including things like weather stripping, new windows, insulation, energy efficient refrigerators, even a new furnace and more.  These services are provided AT NO CHARGE to the applicant.

While there is an income limit of 200% of the poverty level ($47,700 for a family of four), households where a member receives TANF, SSI (Supplementary Security Income), Food Stamps or an Adoption Subsidy are deemed to be Categorically Eligible.  Categorical eligibility means that households are determined to be eligible despite a total household income that may exceed the income guidelines.

Both homeowners and renters may qualify.  Please help us spread the word about the Weatherization Assistance Program to North Arlington residents, as well as friends and family anywhere in Bergen County.

.  The Weatherization Department website is :  If you have any questions or need more information please feel free to contact  the Weatherization Department directly at 973-546-1441 for more information.
