The overall goal of the Weatherization Program is to serve those low-income households that are most vulnerable to high-energy costs and who do not have the means of making cost-effective energy conservation improvements to their homes. (See the eligibility guidelines.)
OEP, whenever possible, collaborates with the electric and natural gas utilities' energy efficiency programs to enhance the weatherization services provided to low-income households in New Hampshire. See Energy Efficiency Rebates and Incentives for more information about the utility-sponsored programs - note that these programs are available to everyone, so they are a resource even if you are not eligible for WAP.
To apply for Weatherization Assistance, contact your local Community Action Agency (CAA) to set up an appointment or learn more about the application process.
Once an applicant is determined income eligible, the application is placed on the waiting list. An energy auditor will contact the applicant to schedule a time to perform a comprehensive home energy audit.
If the building is determined as qualified, the energy auditor will then develop an energy audit report that will identify all cost effective energy saving improvements. From this list, qualified improvements will be installed based on order of highest savings.
