NAYA initiates Cully Weatherization 2.0 PDF Print E-mail

10.29.2014: This winter, Living Cully -- together with Clean Energy Works , MACG, Energy Trust of Oregon, Multnomah County Health Department and Portland Housing Bureau -- is supporting neighborhood stabilization and offsetting the pressures of gentrification in Cully through the Cully Weatherization 2.0 project.  Cully Wx 2.0 builds off of 2010's Changing the Climate in Cully project, led by MACG.

After intensive neighborhood outreach, the project partners will launch a pilot weatherizing up to 100 single-family owner-occupied homes-with a focus on low- and moderate-income households and communities of color-to advance the benefits of carbon reduction, energy savings, workforce development and positive health outcomes.

To find out if you qualify for the Cully Weatherization 2.0 project, please contact the project coordinator at the Native American Youth & Family Center via email ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
