> Wisconsin Weatherization Assistance Program
The Wisconsin Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) provides energy conservation services in homes occupied by low-income families to help defray high home energy costs. Services provided often include attic, wall and floor insulation, repair or replacement of inefficient furnaces, and water heater insulation. Program operators also deal with some health and safety issues by installing smoke detectors, checking carbon monoxide levels, testing for lead paint, asbestos, and moisture problems.
Families and individuals whose household income is at or below 150 percent of the Federal poverty level are eligible for weatherization assistance. Both homeowners and renters can be eligible for no-cost services. However, a contribution is required in rental property where the property owner pays the heating cost for the unit. Priority is given to homes occupied by elderly or disabled persons, households with children under six years old, and homes that have high energy costs.
