> Kansas Weatherization Assistance Program
The Kansas Weatherization Assistance Program (K-WAP) operates year round and is an energy conservation program that helps qualified households pay for home weatherization needs. Stop getting zapped by those high-energy bills. Take steps toward conserving energy and lowering utility bills by applying for weatherization today.
The elderly, disabled, or those with at least one child in the home are identified as a special population which deems them a priority when a waiting list for services develops. Emergency situations also receive priority (e.g., furnace tests positive for carbon monoxide).
