Become a Weatherization Provider


Weatherization Assistance Program

The NYS Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is the largest residential energy conservation program in the country.  NYS WAP assists income-eligible homeowners and renters in our state by reducing heating and cooling costs through energy-conservation measures, while also addressing health and safety issues in their homes.

NYS WAP services are prioritized to reduce the amount of energy needed to heat and cool homes, supply hot water and provide lighting, thus reducing energy consumption while minimizing the impact of higher fuel costs on low-income families now and in the future.

Both privately owned single-family and multi-family buildings are assisted.  The NYS WAP also helps reduce energy costs of affordable housing developed or supervised by HCR.  Homeowners, affordable housing developers, property managers, and other housing and community development agencies are encouraged to contact their local NYS WAP provider for more information.

Provider Information

NYS Weatherization Assistance providers who perform these services include community-based not-for-profit organizations, community action agencies, counties, and units of local government.  To be eligible, a provider must demonstrate the capacity to administer the Weatherization Assistance Program and have history of providing service to the community.  Service providers who have demonstrated this capacity are selected through an annual State planning process.  These selected providers then enter into a contract with the State and are referred to as NYS WAP Subgrantees.
