Weatherization Assistance Program

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is a free program provided to income-eligible renters and homeowners on Long Island, especially the elderly and disabled, to make their homes more energy-efficient. Potential improvements include insulation, weather stripping, air sealing, boiler/furnace upgrades, and energy-efficient windows and doors. The work is determined by an energy audit conducted by one of our BPI-certified building analysts using a variety of tests and tools that determine the most cost-effective means of reducing energy consumption in the dwelling.
