What is Weatherization?

The Weatherization Assistance Program is the nation's LARGEST residential energy efficiency program.

Very simply, weatherization improves heating efficiency and fuel savings by ensuring your home holds in heat and air-conditioning, while keeping hot and cold air out.  At NO CHARGE to the client, income eligible families receive a compre-
hensive home assessment which includes repair or replacement of heating systems, insulation and caulking.

Types of Assistance

Weatherization services may include:

  • weatherstripping
  • caulking around doors and windows
  • cleaning, testing, repairs or replacement
    of refrigerators, heating and/or cooling systems
  • adding insulation to walls, ceilings and foundations
  • infiltration reduction

Who is Eligible?

Eligibility is based on household income relative to federal low-income guidelines. If a household contains a member who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits or utility assistance from the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP), the household is automatically considered eligible for weatherization services.

How Do I Apply?

It’s simple! Contact the local weatherization service provider located in your county.
