GRANITE FALLS, Minn. — The May 2022 edition of Pioneer PBS’s public affairs program Compass features a low-income weatherization program, creative healthcare employee recruitment in Hutchinson and excerpts from a press conference in Willmar on the avian influenza outbreak. The program will air Thursday, May 12 at 9 p.m. and will be viewable online at www.pioneer.org/compass. People in Pioneer PBS's viewing area can livestream the episode at pioneer.org/live during the broadcast time. Viewers are encouraged to visit Compass on Facebook and YouTube to give feedback on the stories.
The Minnesota Community Action Partnership has a weatherization program that qualifying households can apply for through a participating local community action agency. Compass followed Bob Hoium from Prairie Five Community Action Council to learn about how the program helps income-qualifying homeowners save and go greener by reducing energy consumption.
