Weatherization Assistance Program

Weatherization Energy Conservation Programs

The NYS Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is the largest residential energy conservation program in the country.  NYS WAP assists income-eligible homeowners and renters in our state by reducing heating and cooling costs through energy-conservation measures, while also addressing health and safety issues in their homes.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), through state and local agencies, helps low-income households reduce their energy costs and make their homes safer and more comfortable through energy efficiency improvements. Since 1976, more than 7 million families have improved their quality of life through the WAP. Households eligible to participate in the WAP save on average $372 or more per year.

NYS WAP services are prioritized to reduce the amount of energy needed to heat and cool homes, supply hot water and provide lighting, thus reducing energy consumption while minimizing the impact of higher fuel costs on low-income families now and in the future.

Both privately owned single-family and multi-family buildings are assisted.  The NYS WAP also helps reduce energy costs of affordable housing developed or supervised by HCR.  Homeowners, affordable housing developers, property managers, and other housing and community development agencies are encouraged to contact their local NYS WAP provider for more information.
