GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD)- October is Energy Awareness Month, and Kent County Community Action is offering a Weatherization Assistance Program for residents who qualify to help keep individuals and families warmer in the upcoming winter months.

Weatherization tips:
• Install draft-stoppers on exterior doors, to avoid drafts.
