                                    TO THE BUILDING OWNER

Your building is being considered for weatherization services under the State of Alaska’s Enhanced
Weatherization (WX+) Program. This program is funded by the State of Alaska and the United States
Department of Health and Social Services and administered by the Tanana Chiefs Conference as the
agency serving your region.

The WX+ operates under the rules and regulations of both the United States Department of Energy’s
Low-income Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) and the Alaska Department of Community and
Regional Affairs which have certain requirements of which you as building owner should be aware. At
the bottom of this page is a form granting permission for the responsible agency to enter your building to
collect eligibility documentation from your tenants and prepare a work plan.

If you want your building to receive the substantial improvements provided under the Enhanced
Weatherization Program, you are required to pay 50 percent of the cost of materials. Your agreement to
provide funding is not necessary until after the local agency has completed a work plan for your
building. At that time, you will be contacted by the agency to consider the planned work, your
estimated cost, and your willingness to pay your cost. If you prefer to finance your portion of the cost,
the agency may be able to assist you in locating lenders and applying for financial assistance. A copy of
the Owner Agreement is attached so that you may review it before meeting with the agency to consider
signing.

                               PERMISSION TO ENTER PREMISES

I, as owner/authorized agent for the building located at        _________________________ have read
and understand the above and hereby grant permission for representatives of Tanana Chiefs Conference
to enter this premises for the purposes of collecting eligibility documentation from the residents and
conducting a work plan which may include a blower door test, an infrared scan, testing of the air, and a
combustion test on heaters.

               Alaska Weatherization Assistance Program Landlord – Tenant Policy
                          PERMISSION TO WEATHERIZE HOME

Applicable governing rules and regulations: 10 CFR 440.3, AS 34.03.010-380, Alaska Landlord –
Tenant Statutes.

Effective June 11, 1999.

A Weatherization Landlord – Tenant Permission to Enter Premises Agreement shall be signed in any
situation where a weatherization service provider plans to weatherize a rental dwelling unit. Prior to
conducting energy related building inspections and assessments, repairs and improvements,
weatherization service providers shall obtain written permission to enter the premises. The Landlord –
Tenant Agreement shall be signed prior to commencing weatherization activities. At least 24 hours
notice will be given to each tenant prior to assessing that unit.

If an agent acting on behalf of the owner of the property is to sign the agreement, that agent must show a
witnessed or notarized power of attorney authorizing that agent to enter into contractual agreements for
an owner.

A multi-family rental dwelling unit priority system shall be established by each agency as a part of the
regular client priority list. Priority will be given to buildings where elderly or disabled people reside, or
those dwelling which house families with children under six years of age. If a building with at least
50% of units housing those priority clients, the building will be a number one priority. If the building
houses 25% to 49% priority clients, it will be a number 2 priority, and if less than 25% are priority
clients, it will be a number three priority. Individual units may be served using the regular client priority
list.

In all rental units, the weatherization service provider will determine the amount of materials needed to
weatherize the building. Service providers shall ask for cash or in-kind contributions from the
owner/agent. Whether or not a contribution is specified, weatherization work may precede.

For all units in a rental dwelling, the dollar amount of materials and labor provided by (the
Weatherization Service Provider) shall not exceed $(750) per unit, unless the owner is willing to
contribute cash or in-kind services. For any owner contributions, the weatherization agency will provide
up to $750 in materials and labor, and then match dollar for dollar any owner contribution, up to an
amount estimated by the weatherization assessor. If the landlord refuses to make a contribution, and the
job costs exceed the $750 estimated amount by less than 50% due to unexpected problems, no owner
contribution will be required, though the weatherization service provider may solicit one. If the owner
provides the materials as an in-kind contribution, weatherization crews may install those materials at the
going labor rate.



1299-94.4                                                                                                  4
On rental buildings of four-plex or less, or where tenants pay the heating fuel bills, the investment per
unit may be an amount specified by the weatherization service provider up to $1,200 without an owner
contribution. This amount shall be a part of the landlord tenant agreement, and be applied fairly and
equitably to all landlords.

Owners who qualify under the low income guidelines plus 20% can waive their contribution.

In-kind contributions or improvements may be counted in a similar manner as cash contributions. These
may include energy conservation or health and safety improvements to individual units, or to common
areas of the building. Only improvements made to the building in the six months immediately prior to
the date of applications may be counted as in-kind contributions. The Weatherization agency will
determine the value of improvements, using actual receipts for materials. Copies of all receipts should
be included in the client file. Weatherization service providers may create additional policies to count
non-cash contributions, so long as they are applied fairly and equitably to all landlords. These policies
may be subject to approval by AHFC program staff.

Improvements made by the owner should be made prior to the start of weatherization activities
whenever possible. If improvements must be made after Weatherization activities, the Weatherization
agency will insure they are completed.

All heating work will be included in the $750 on all rental units, if heating system service or repair costs
exceed $250.00 or need replacement, the owner must contribute 50% of the cost. The first $250, which
is not subject to the 50/50 match of landlord contributions, will count toward the $750 limit mentioned
in owner contributions above. All owner contributions for heating systems and weatherization activities
will be returned to the Weatherization Assistance Program, and shall not be used for other than
legitimate weatherization activities. Agencies may have the owner make the required contribution
directly to another contractor or materials supplier, provided they keep track of the transaction for
reporting purposes.

Only eligible weatherization measures shall be applied to any building, if the funds used to perform
those measures are funds provided by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC), and/or the
Department of Energy (DOE). No undue enhancement shall occur to the value of the dwelling units as a
result of weatherization work performed. Undue enhancement is defined as any enhancement to a
building that increases the value of the property, and does not provide energy conservation or health and
safety benefits to the tenant. If enhancements to the building can be shown to benefit a tenant, that
enhancement shall not be considered undue.

Commencing on the date this agreement is signed, and continuing for a period of eighteen months, the
building owner shall not terminate or evict any covered tenants or any subsequent tenants, provided the
tenant complies with all obligations owed to the owner in accordance with any leases or rental
agreements between the owner and tenants.

The agreement applies to present tenants and any subsequent tenants for the eighteen month period.

In addition to the provisions outlined above, all provisions of the Alaska Uniform Landlord and Tenant
Act (AS 34.03.010-380) apply to the owner and tenants who are parties to this agreement.

10 CFR 440.3(I) requires the benefits of weatherization assistance accrue primarily to the tenant, and not
to the landlord. Each agency should be prepared to show how weatherization has benefited the client of


1299-94.5                                                                                                 5
a rented dwelling, especially where the owner of the building pays the utilities. Agencies may use the
following form or develop some means of determining benefits to each tenant. Exit interviews
conducted during final inspections can assist an agency in determining benefits.

The agreement shall run with the land and/or weatherized unit in the case of sale or transfer to other
owner agents. A copy of this agreement shall be provided to the owner, tenant and Weatherization
provider’s client file.

             DECLARATION OF INCOME ELIGIBILITY AND WORK APPROVAL

Permission is granted to perform weatherization work on my residence. I understand that funds for
weatherization assistance are being provided by the State of Alaska. As such the State may monitor
dwellings on a random basis for the sole purpose of determining that work was actually accomplished
and that program funds were properly expended. This monitoring does not include an inspection for or
in any way address compliance with fire, building, or any other safety codes. According to the terms of
the contract between State of Alaska and the Weatherization contractor, responsibility for weatherization
work performed on your dwelling must comply with existing applicable codes and/or manufacturers’
