WAP - Weatherization Assistance Program

Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

The Weatherization Assistance Program helps income-eligible households reduce heating bills by providing whole house energy efficiency services to households that qualify for LIHEAP. Some services available include installing insulation and providing health and safety measures including: installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, reducing drafts, and providing proper ventilation. Your local CAP agency will walk you through the application process but below are some important points to keep in mind:

  • Community Action Program (CAP) agencies take WAP applications throughout the year.
  • Applicants should first apply for Heating Assistance at their local CAP agency.
  • Both homeowners and renters (with landlord approval) are eligible for WAP.
  • CAP agencies provide convenient and safe intake locations and will arrange for elderly or disabled individuals to apply at an intake site.
  • CAP agencies have procedures to allow non-English speakers and people with literacy problems to apply for assistance and comply with application requirements.

Learn more and how to apply by contacting your local Community Action Program agency.

Due to the nature of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), the close contact between WAP staff and customers, and the amount of work that occurs inside customers’ homes, the WAP will not resume home visits until August 3, 2020.
