Weatherization Assistance Program

Bookmark and Share
   

 Weatherization Calendar 

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. The goal of this program is to keep Kentuckians warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and safe all year long.

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.

For households who are struggling, the savings and added comfort are an enormous benefit. For contractors surviving a 75 percent decrease in new home construction, the contract work this program provides is keeping their businesses and families from hardship, as well.

The Weatherization Assistance Program is delivered to individuals across the state by Community Action Kentucky through a network of 22 local Community Action Agencies. Louisville Metro Housing serves Jefferson County. If you are interested in applying for a Weatherization retrofit for your home, want to view a full list of requirements, find the Community Action Agency that serves your area, or you are or your firm is interested in working on a WAP project, please review the Resources page.
