The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) helps low income families save hundreds of dollars on their bills every year by making their homes more energy efficient. HPC fights to keep WAP authorized and fully funded. WAP not only saves precious income for low income families, it also improves the health and well-being of low income residents, especially those most vulnerable, such as children and the elderly.
HPC also plays a key role in convening members of the home performance and weatherization communities to develop best practices for working together to ensure private sector engagement and common guidelines and training for WAP contractors. HPC serves as a liaison between the home performance contractor and low income communities, facilitating ongoing dialogue, collaboration, and policy development to advance shared goals.
