Weatherization Assistance Program

Weatherization Assistance Program

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is the nation’s largest residential energy efficiency program. WAP enables low-income families the opportunity to lower their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient. 

Trained inspectors and crews retrofit housing for families living at or below the threshold of 200 percent of poverty, at no cost to the family. The work includes installing insulation, sealing the exterior, repairing ducts, and replacing heating equipment where necessary. It is common for a family to save as much as $500 in utility bill costs in the year following the retrofit, depending on the household’s usage habits, the climate in the area, and unit prices for the region.

The WAP is delivered to individuals across the state by Community Action Kentucky through a network of 22 local Community Action Agencies. To find a Community Action Agency in your area, click here.
