The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program provides grants to states, territories, and some Indian tribes to improve the energy efficiency of the homes of low-income families. These governments, in turn, contract with local governments and nonprofit agencies to provide weatherization services to those in need using the latest technologies for home energy upgrades. Since the program began in 1976, DOE has helped improve the lives of than 7 million families by reducing their energy bills.
The Weatherization Assistance Program Technical Assistance Center (WAPTAC) provides contact information for the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) in the states and U.S. territories.
