Weatherization

The Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP) provides eligible Ohioans with assistance to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and reduce their energy costs. Ohioans participating in the HWAP will receive a home inspection to identify the services necessary to improve their home’s energy efficiency.

Who is Eligible for HWAP?

Ohioans with a household income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for the program.

Priority is given to Ohioans who are older than age of 60, those with disabilities, those with children in the home, and households with a high energy usage and/or burden. All families who have received assistance any time during the last 12 months under Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Home Energy Assistance (HEAP) (does not include Emergency HEAP) are automatically income eligible for weatherization services. Please remember an application must be submitted in order to apply for services.

What Services does HWAP provide?

HWAP can assist with services including furnace replacement/repair, insulation, air sealing, and hot water tank replacement/repair. An HWAP team member will schedule and conduct an inspection to determine eligible services.

National Weatherization Day

Each year, communities across the country mark October 30th as National Weatherization Day. Weatherization Day is an opportunity to highlight the impact of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) which saves energy, improves the health and safety of homes, and supports jobs and small businesses. State and Local WAP agencies plan events and actions each year to showcase Weatherization Day such as community celebrations or WAP site visits with members of Congress. Many WAP programs are featured in the press and many governor’s officially issue a Weatherization Day Proclamation.
