Weatherization Day is October 30!
Weatherization Day was conceived as a means to focus local, state, and national attention on the Program and the work being performed by dedicated members of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) network.
Capitalizing on the Department of Energy’s (DOE) declaration of October as Energy Awareness Month, Weatherization Programs across the country band together to make a strategic push to raise the public’s awareness of the work we do every day.

The importance of Weatherization Day cannot be over emphasized. When everyone knows about the outstanding work you perform, they are more willing to support your work – in your community, your state, and nationally!
Each year, more and more states conduct site demonstrations with state and local leaders in attendance and publishing articles about the excellent services being provided in their communities. Here you will find resources and information on how to make a Weatherization Day in your area a success.
