The Home Weatherization Assistance Program, (HWAP), is a U.S. Department of Energy-funded program. It was designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption for Marion and Crawford County’s low-income households. Providing 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. HWAP employs professional, certified staff and contractors, and uses specialized diagnostic equipment to identify deficiencies that cause energy loss. Services are available to homeowners and renters who meet the established federal program guidelines for up to $6,500 in labor and material cost per housing unit.
