SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Thousands of Utah homes will get a tighter seal over the next three years as $38 million in federal stimulus funds are spent on weatherization projects.

Of that, the Salt Lake Community Action Program will get about $11 million to help make homes more energy efficient and cut costs for fuel.

The nonprofit group says 35 new staffers have been hired, including energy auditors and crews to replace windows, install insulation and make other energy-saving alterations to homes.

Officials say that although Utah has had a weatherization program for 30 years, there's still a need for improvements and upgrades.
