Weatherization Assistance Program


The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) assists families and individuals by reducing their heating/cooling costs.

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) also improves the safety of the homes through energy efficiency measures. Energy efficiency measures performed through the program include air sealing (weather stripping, caulking), wall and ceiling insulation, heating system improvements or replacement, efficiency improvements in lighting, hot water tank and pipe insulation, and refrigerator replacements with highly efficient Energy Star rated units. Both single-family and multi-family buildings are assisted. Household energy use reductions and resultant energy cost savings are significant, with an average savings in excess of 20%.
