HANAC Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)
At WAP, once an applicant is deemed eligible, a comprehensive energy analysis of the applicant’s home is conducted. Based on that analysis and the funds available, those weatherization measures that have been determined to be the most cost-effective in reducing the application’s energy consumption while increasing their comfort are instituted.
Depending on the energy analysis of the building, the program may provide energy conservation measures such as high efficiency lighting, energy star refrigerators, roof insulation, boiler and window repair and replacement and much more.
Any size building is eligible to apply. Weatherization is the only New York State Department of Housing and Community Renewal (NYSDHCR) sponsored program that effectively deals with energy conservation and gives both short-term and long-term savings benefits to both landlord and tenants. HANAC conducts several thousand housing visits each year to access and provide a variety of weatherization initiatives.
