> Arkansas Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is the nation's largest residential energy efficiency program. Its mission is to insulate the dwellings of low-income persons (particularly the elderly, persons with disabilities, families with children, high residential energy users, and households with a high energy burden) in order to conserve needed energy and to aid those persons least able to afford higher utility costs. WAP provides funds to conserve energy in the homes of low-income people, with emphasis on elderly, handicapped, and families with children. An automated energy audit, called the National Energy Audit (NEAT), is used to determine the most cost effective measures on single frame houses. The Mobile Home Energy Audit (MHEA) is used to determine the most effective measures to be installed on mobile homes.
