Department of Energy (DOE), Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Weatherization & Intergovernmental Program
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program (WIP) provides grants, technical assistance, and information tools to states, local governments, community action agencies, utilities, Indian tribes, and overseas U.S. territories for their energy programs. WIP administers the The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), the State Energy Program, and the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program. The WAP enables low-income families to permanently reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient while ensuring their health and safety. Funds are used to improve the energy performance of homes of low-income families using the most advanced technologies, techniques and testing protocols available in the housing industry. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) provides funding to states, territories, and Indian tribal governments, which manage the day-to-day details of the program. These governments, in turn, fund a network of local community action agencies, nonprofit organizations, and local governments that provide these weatherization services in every state, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, and among Native American tribes.
