Don't know if there is any federal money left for upgrading insulation but if there is contact them too.

I'm moving and everything is packed but drilled holes and blown in insulation is not much better than nothing at all. I'm restoring a 1946 bungalow that this was done on and have pictures of multiple stud cavities with barely 1/3 full of insulation due to bridging.
The alum has eps glued to the back of it and it seems like removing it to recycle the Alum would be a real big hassle
