The Weatherization Assistance Program is a federally funded program that provides energy conservation home improvements to reduce energy consumption costs. Each home is inspected before and after work is done in order to ensure that homes are more energy efficient upon project completion. Homeowners are made aware of all areas of the home on which work will be completed. Improvements may include exterior wall and attic insulation, air infiltration and bypass sealing, and the testing, repair or replacement of the home’s mechanical systems to ensure efficiency and safety.
Homeowners and renters who apply and are eligible for the Energy Assistance Program are automatically screened for participation in the Weatherization Assistance Program. Priority is given to households with at least one senior citizen, individual with a disability or child, or to households with the highest heating costs.
The Weatherization Assistance Program also provides the following:
- Education to consumers regarding home energy efficiency and safety.
- Energy audits to evaluate home energy usage.
- Conservation Improvement Programs in collaboration with local utilities and fuel suppliers.
