Happy Weatherization Day, October 30!

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 to lower their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient. Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) received funding for WAP through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services' Low Income Heating Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).
Expert teams of inspectors and crews perform cost-free retrofits for eligible individuals. This includes installing insulation, sealing exteriors, duct repairs, and, if needed, heating equipment replacements. Families often save up to $500 annually on utility bills post-retrofit, with savings varying based on usage habits, local climate, and regional unit prices.
The WAP is delivered to individuals across the state by Community Action Kentucky's 20 local Community Action Agencies.
