As a result of the on-going COVID-19 health emergency, in order to minimize the potential for spreading the virus through personal contact HCR’s regional offices are not currently open to the public.  However, all Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) staff are working from remote locations and all daily operations of the program continue uninterrupted.  WAP staff can be contacted directly by email using their existing email addresses.  All phone inquiries can be directed to the central office line at 518-474-5700.   

The Weatherization Assistance Program is administered through a network of local non-profit community-based organizations and government entities.  If you want to apply for WAP, have questions, or are in need of information specific to the local provider, please proceed to the section below and contact the appropriate local provider directly:
