Weatherization Assistance Program
THAP’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) reduces energy costs for low-income households by increasing the energy efficiency of the homes while ensuring the resident’s health and safety. It is the nation’s single largest residential whole-house energy efficiency program. The Weatherization Assistance Program has created an industry, producing new jobs and technologies, all while helping the most vulnerable families in America. THAP continues to serve Hillsborough & Polk County residents providing energy efficient upgrades.
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 who are particularly vulnerable such as the elderly, the disabled, and children.”
