Cash for caulkers is the newest cash incentive for consumers. The goals of the cash for caulkers program, or the Homestar program, are to create jobs and save on energy bills.
The house passed the $6 billion cash for caulkers program yesterday, so I’m sure we’ll be hearing lots about it in the next few weeks.
Apparently the “cash for stuff” names are sticking after the cash for clunkers program last year.
Details on the rebates for renovating your home with the homestar program include:
The cash for caulkers program is different than the energy efficient tax credit ending this year. And if it goes through as planned, you might want to wait, because a 50% rebate could be worth much more than the current 30% tax credits.
Next up, a vote in the Senate. We’ll see if the Homestar cash for caulkers program will become law. Until then, hold off on the home improvement projects!
