The Home Weatherization Assistance Program, commonly referred to as HWAP, is a U.S. Department of Energy-funded program. It is not an emergency response program. It is a program designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption of Stark County's low-income households. Providing weatherproofing and energy efficiency measures, HWAP helps to make utility bills more affordable.
Energy efficient measures may include a household audit, heating system inspection, attic and side wall insulation, or an electric baseload analysis (review) to address light and appliance efficiency. It does not replace furnaces, water heaters, roofs, install storm windows/doors, prime windows/doors, paint houses, remove water or mold from houses or install siding or spouting. HWAP employs professional, certified staff and contractors, and uses specialized diagnostic equipment to identify structural needs. Services are available to homeowners and renters who meet the established federal program guidelines.
This will be determined at the time your application is taken. All individuals age 18 yrs. or older residing in your home must provide income documentation for the past 12 months to determine your qualifying status for HWAP services. All items required to complete the application will be explained to you upon agency contact.
