The Missouri Department of Natural Resources' (MoDNR) Energy Center will hold a public hearing on the statewide Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program application for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The public hearing will be held April 24 in Jefferson City. MoDNR will hold the public hearing from 10:00 until 11:30 a.m., or until all comments are noted for public record, on Friday, April 24, 2009, at the Lewis and Clark State Office Building in the Nightingale Creek Conference Room, 1101 Riverside Drive, Jefferson City, MO.
During the hearing, the public is invited to comment concerning Missouri's state plan for the new three-year grant application under ARRA. The program funds are provided by DOE and are administered by the Energy Center.
