Bristol Community Development Specialist Mindy Bowman said this will help homeowners identify if the can update their home.
"[It's] just information session so that the homeowners can come out and figure out if they qualify. we'll also be passing out information," Bowman said.
Homeowners who qualify for the grant money will have a home energy audit by Bristol Tennessee Essential Services.
