WEATHERIZATION WORKS TABALE OFCNS XNLUIL X CVMLLRLLECFINLYLFTVTBNLGDPH 35 WEATHERIZATION BY THE NUMBERS TRAINING & TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE Weatherization is an extensive process and requires continual training and support on the technical, management and programmatic elements to ensure the Program is implemented effectively. Weatherization Assistance Program | RFP Toolkit As of July 6 Specifically, we recommend including program details such as: Any special non-DOE specific certification requirements - i.e., State-level certification programs. Housing types – predominately single family, under 20% multi-family, manufactured homes, etc. An evaluation plan (ORNL/TM/87) was developed at the beginning of the project to help plan and implement the effort, which led to the development of 10 OMB approved survey and data forms. Thirteen reports document the various studies that comprised the evaluation.
DOE sponsored two major national evaluations of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). These were multiyear, peer-reviewed, statistically robust efforts led by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The Retrospective Evaluation covered Program Year (PY) and is reflective of a typical year in WAP operations. Low-income household eligibility is defined in the Federal Weatherization Assistance Program as % of the poverty income levels. In two-or-more unit dwellings, at least 50% of the households must income-qualify for the weatherization of the entire building to be eligible for low-income payments. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program reduces energy costs for low-income households by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes, while ensuring their health and safety. The program supports 8, jobs and provides weatherization services to approximat homes every year using DOE funds. The Louisiana Housing Corporation offers information on the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). Find out more information about the program, income levels, and other information needed to apply.

Weatherization Assistance Program around the country for a number of years, was engaged to perform the Washington State evaluation and began its study in the summer of SCOPE OF REPORT The subsequent chapters of this report describe the research methods used in this study and. Weatherization has operated for more than 40 years and is the nation's largest single "whole-house" energy efficiency program. The Program’s primary purpose, established by law, is " to increase the energy efficiency of dwellings owned or occupied by low-income persons, reduce their total residential energy expenditures, and improve their health and safety, especially low-income persons. Our activities include technical support for the Weatherization Assistant energy audit software tool, evaluations of the DOE Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) and State Energy Program (SEP), and policy research in support of weatherization and low-income programs. DOE is pleased to summarize the results of two major national evaluations of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP or Weatherization). These evaluations were multiyear, peer-reviewed, statistically robust efforts led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
