Helping low-income individuals and families reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient.
Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) offers assistance to homeowners, renters and mobile home owners to improve the energy efficiency and safety of their homes so that they hold heat better in the winter and stay cooler in the summer.
Weatherization can help reduce energy costs by repairing, replacing or upgrading things in your home that cost the most energy. Through weatherization improvements and upgrades, participating households save on average $283 or more every year.
If you qualify for the program, locally-based and professionally trained weatherization crews use computerized energy assessments and advanced diagnostic equipment to create a comprehensive analysis of the home to determine the most cost effective improvements for your home. The Weatherization Assistance Program also thoroughly inspects households to ensure the occupant's safety and checking indoor air quality.
Households who make 200% or less of the federal poverty level are eligible for services.
This program is not restricted to any age group, but prioritizes assistance to the disabled, seniors, and households with children under six years old, and those with the highest energy costs.
Owners, as well as tenants, may qualify providing they meet income-eligibility guidelines. Renters’ application must include a notarized Weatherization Rental Agreement.
If qualifying under HEAT Program guidelines, you can receive a 20% reduction on earned income/wages. If qualifying under the guidelines above, income is based on gross monthly income without any deductions.
A home is eligible for Weatherization if it has never been weatherized or if it has been previously weatherized more than 15 years ago. Program guidelines and services have changed since your home was weatherized and we may be able to assist you with even more energy efficient measures. Our weatherization staff will complete an energy audit to determine if services will be beneficial to your home.
