Weatherization Assistance Program

Save energy and address health and safety concerns through weatherization.

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) increases the energy efficiency of dwellings owned or occupied by low-income persons.

WAP uses Whole House Weatherization, which treats the house as a single energy-consuming system, rather than a loose collection of unrelated pieces of equipment. It requires advanced diagnostic skills and cost-effective measure selection and installation. These conservation measures result in energy and cost savings. Single-family homes, multifamily buildings, and mobile homes are eligible.

Energy-efficiency measures performed through the program may include:

  • Air and duct sealing
  • Wall, floor, and attic insulation
  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system improvements
  • Energy efficiency improvements in lighting
  • Hot water tank and pipe insulation
  • Water conservation devices

To apply for weatherization services, contact your local community action agency.

Vendors should contact the community action agencies directly about participating in the WAP.
