Standard Program Description Option 2
 
Serving as the nation's core program for delivering energy-efficiency services to low-income households, the U.S. Department of Energy's Weatherization Assistance Program prioritizes service to the elderly, persons with disabilities, and households with children. Since its inception in 1976, more than seven million households have experienced energy efficiency, financial, and health and safety gains as a result of weatherization measures.
 
The program's professionally trained crews use computerized energy audits and advanced diagnostic equipment to identify energy-saving strategies in single-family, multi-family, and mobile homes. Cost-effective weatherization measures and those that are essential for health and safety are then performed, including, but not limited to, installation of insulation, furnace and boiler retrofits, and cooling measures for warm climates. Not only does the Weatherization Program serve every county in the nation through its partnerships with approximately 1,000 local Weatherization agencies, it also supports over 25,000 jobs nationwide, many in low-income areas. For more information about the Weatherization Assistance Program, please call (insert state/local agency phone number) or visit the national web site.
