RurAL CAP Expands WARM Home Program in 2021
The Rural Alaska Community Action Program (RurAL CAP), through a grant provided by the Municipality of Anchorage, announced its expanded 2021 Weatherization, Accessibility, Repair and Modifications (WARM) Home Program.
The WARM Home program consists of three categories that emphasize health, safety, and indoor air quality: weatherization, mobile home repair, and accessibility upgrades. Each service is available to eligible homes in the Municipality of Anchorage (specifically Anchorage, Girdwood, Chugiak, and Eagle River).
WARM Home Program staff assess each eligible home before determining what improvements are possible. Staff regularly provide services that include sealing windows, adding insulation, and improving the efficiency of heating systems. They also provide client education and resources that support the ongoing maintenance and efficiency of homes, increasing home affordability through lower utility costs and home livability.
Benefits of the improvements can include increased home energy efficiency, reduced maintenance costs, prolonged safe aging in place, and extended useful life on mobile and single-family homes. As our community continues to address COVID-19, improvements to indoor air quality also support health and safety.

The Corporate 100
Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
