Arizona’s Weatherization Assistance Program

The Arizona Federal Weatherization Assistance Program was created to help low-income families and individuals improve their energy efficiency, lower their overall energy costs, and fix health and safety problems in their homes that are related to energy use.  To qualify, you must be an Arizona resident and your income cannot exceed the state requirement.

To find out if you meet the income requirements for weatherization assistance, download the Weatherization Income Qualifications Limits. This is for anyone applying for weatherization services, whether they own their own home or are renting (with permission from their landlord).

All types of primary residences in Arizona, including single-family homes, townhomes, duplexes, and apartment complexes, as well as mobile homes and trailers, are eligible for this program. To check if you are eligible, download the WAP Contact Information and Service Areas by County, Rev. 4-15-22 (link is external).

Goals

The Weatherization Program’s primary objective is to decrease fuel or energy expenditures for space heating, space cooling, and water heating in income-eligible homes while simultaneously improving tenant health and safety.

Shortly after the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo, the federal government started the initiative as an anti-poverty effort. Following the initial grant to the state of Maine, the program quickly expanded to cover the bulk of New England states. Congress charged the Federal Energy Administration (FEA) with administering the National Weatherization Assistance Program and making payments to state governments in 1976. The former FEA was merged into the new U.S. Department of Energy in 1980.

Individuals and families who qualify for federal aid frequently spend a higher proportion of their annual income on energy to heat, cool, and power their homes. The Weatherization Program was designed to help households reduce their energy costs while also addressing energy-related health and safety concerns. The Weatherization Program is funded by the United States Departments of Energy and Health and Human Services.

What Does Weatherization Entail?

  • Adding thermal insulation to a home’s exterior, typically in the attic.
  • Shielding south-facing windows, especially in homes with central air conditioning.
  • Stopping air leaks will reduce the amount of outside air that enters a building.
  • Heating and cooling equipment must be examined, adjusted, and maintained.
  • When using a forced air system to circulate heating and centrally cooled air, it is essential to minimize duct leakage.
  • Installing low-flow shower heads and taking further measures to conserve electricity and water.
  • Other energy-saving measures discovered by the home energy auditor.
