Weatherization Overview

In the majority of the states, the same agency that administers LIHEAP also administers the Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program. (View a list of these states)

Additionally, the majority of the states set aside a portion of their LIHEAP grant for weatherization purposes. (View a breakdown). States have the flexibility to allocate up to 15 percent of LIHEAP funds (25 percent after receiving a waiver) to energy conservation measures.

In this section, the LIHEAP Clearinghouse will periodically upload information relevant to weatherization. However, it is not intended to be a comprehensive review of WAP operations.
