National Weatherization Month starts today! Sure, October 30 is Weatherization Day, but why not take the whole month to build up the anticipation to promote the program and your good work?
This is a great time to involve your partners in publicizing your activities. Bringing in partners – like healthy homes, CSBG, housing, State Energy Program, and LIHEAP stakeholders – can build support for the WAP and show how connected the program is to the community. Try inviting partners to an event or holding a joint event, issuing a joint press release, or working out a social media campaign. When we engage with partners, we broaden the reach, scope, and meaning of the program.
