Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is designed to help low-income families and individuals reduce energy costs by providing materials and installation of certain approved items. This program assists with HIP grants.
A thorough inspection is done to determine attic insulation levels and to pinpoint major air leakage problems. Data collected onsite (building sq. ft., air leakage rate, insulation levels, etc.) along with estimated lists for the energy retrofits is run through a computerized energy audit tool, NEAT/MHEA to develop a detailed work scope which will save the maximum amount of energy for any given investment. (Typical work scopes involve some health & safety work, heating and distribution system efficiency improvements, air sealing and insulation work.)
Counties served are Atlantic and Cape May.
