Gorman Discovery Center located at 4750 Troost Ave., Kansas City, Missouri, telephone number: 816-759-7300. Please see the proposal for more specific information concerning the pre-proposal meeting.

A copy of the proposal may be obtained from the department’s website at:
dnr.mo.gov/energy/weatherization/wx.htm or by contacting the department at 800-361-4827 or 573-751-6630. The department’s website also contains a variety of information on the weatherization program including the Missouri Weatherization Program Operational Manual, the Standard Work Specification Tool, and links to Federal regulations and program guidelines.
