The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

The Weatherization Assistance Program helps low-income households reduce their heating and cooling bills by providing full-scale home energy conservation services. Services provided by the program result in a more comfortable, safe home and a permanent improvement in the lives of occupants. The program is operational year round.

After a household is determined eligible, the local agency schedules an energy inspection of the home. A DOE trained Energy Auditor completes a full inspection of the energy and health and safety concerns of the home and completes a Work Order/Job Write-Up. A network of Community Action Agencies (CAA’s) use crews or local private-sector weatherization contractors to complete the work at no cost to the occupants.
