WAP is a program run by the U.S. Department of Energy that provides free weatherization services to low-income households in order to increase energy efficiency and reduce energy costs.
The weatherization assistance program provides funding to states, territories, and tribal governments, who then use the funds to administer the program locally.
Eligibility for the WAP is based on income and households with income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible.
Some of the measures that may covered by weatherization assistance program include, adding insulation, sealing air leaks, installing energy-efficient lighting and upgrading heating & cooling systems.
Amount of funding for WAP varies from year to year depending on the federal budget and other factors such as population, weather conditions & number of low-income households in need.
