What We Do

The Low-Income Energy Affordability Network (LEAN) is a network of Community Action Agencies, public and private housing owners, government organizations and public utilities working together to provide affordable energy solutions for low-income families throughout Massachusetts. Through the network, LEAN is able to coordinate several programs and funding sources to implement comprehensive energy saving measures on buildings of all kinds at no cost to the client. The savings on energy is a direct benefit to the families who pay their own energy costs, as well as to the housing ownership, helping to keep the housing affordable and help stabilize the bottom line.
