The Weatherization Assistance Program helps low-income families, seniors, individuals with disabilities, families with children, and households with high-energy burdens improve the energy efficiency of their homes. To date, more than 7.4 million low-income residences have been weatherized, reducing energy bills by $250–$450 annually. Weatherization services also play an important role in improving the health and safety of low-income families. Residents of weatherized units report fewer colds, headaches, hospitalizations, doctor’s visits, and absences from school or work. When factoring in energy efficiency and health and safety benefits, every dollar invested in the WAP returns $4.10 for our most vulnerable citizens.
