Weatherization Day Tools & Resources

Weatherization Day is October 30th. What is your state or organization doing to prepare? Weatherization Day is a great chance to send the positive message that Weatherization Works and the network is up to the challenge of providing quality weatherization services to thousands of homes and employing tens of thousands of workers.
In recognition of National Weatherization Day on October 30th, 2009 Matt Rogers, Senior Advisor to Energy Secretary Steven Chu for Recovery Act Implementation, recorded this video. In the video, he emphasizes the energy and cost benefits of improved energy efficiency - encouraging all Americans to install energy efficiency measures in their own homes - and he expresses appreciation to the nation's weatherization network for its past accomplishments and its continued commitment to serving low-income citizens. 
The following tools and resources are free to all to use. These files provide ideas, tools, and information for promoting Weatherization.
