Weatherization Assistance Program to assist low-income families who lacked resources to invest in energy efficiency

Cold snap is here.  Why suffer? Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)  assists low-income families who lack resources to invest in energy efficiency. This is run by The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE).  WAP is in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Native American tribes, and U.S. Territories.

Assistance is provided  to improve the energy efficiency of low-income homes using the most advanced technologies and testing protocols available in the housing industry.

Below is some information provided by website.  Please check out for more details.
One of the primary factors affecting eligibility is income, and each state sets its income requirements within DOE guidelines. Services are provided by the states, and each state has slightly different criteria.
Under DOE guidelines, you are automatically eligible to receive weatherization assistance if you receive Supplemental Security Income or Aid to Families with Dependent Children. In other cases, states give preference to:
  • People over 60 years of age
  • Families with one or more members with a disability
  • Families with children (in most states).
