Minnesota Weatherization Assistance Program Benefits

Program Description

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) uses energy conservation techniques to reduce the cost of home energy by an estimated percent. Correcting health and safety hazards and potentially life-threatening conditions is the first consideration in WAP activities.

All homeowners and renters who are income eligible for Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) are income eligible for WAP. Priority is given to households with at least one elderly or disabled member and to customers with the highest heating costs. WAP is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Energy.
