The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) assists families and individuals by reducing their heating/cooling costs and improving the safety of their homes through energy efficiency measures. Owners/landlords of buildings occupied by low-income households are also encouraged to apply for assistance for their buildings. Participants who reside in a rental unit, please call our office to obtain a copy of the Landlord Preliminary Agreement for your landlord to fill out and sign.
Program services are delivered through New York State Homes and Community Renewal’s statewide network of local service providers. CDCLI is the provider of weatherization services for Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
Funds are made available through the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
Funds are available for approximately 400 homes each year. Applications are addressed on a first-come, first-served basis. If an application is incomplete or determined to be ineligible, you will be notified within 48 hours.
Typical repairs may include but are not limited to:
- Weatherstripping & Caulking
