Weatherization Funding Released for 2013

Rebecca Stewart — Project Coordinator, Energy Services–

Funding for the Program Year 2013 for the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is finally out! On Friday, June 21 the Department of Energy (DOE) released the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the WAP at the level of $137.9 million. You can view the FOA here and the WPN 13-2 that sets State Allocations here.

NASCSP would like to thank DOE and especially Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Dr. David Danielson for his efforts on the Program’s behalf to ensure funding above the $68 million funding level presumed with the year-long Continuing Resolution.

The Fiscal Year 2013 Continuing Resolution funded WAP at $68 million, minus sequestration – an unsustainable level. With the nearly $70 million increase, States will be able to continue their critical work providing energy efficiency retrofits to low-income homes across the nation.

Additionally, we thank the network for all your efforts, and for reaching out to stakeholders and policymakers to help tell the story of how Weatherization Works!

  1. Kudos to Brad, Scoot and others in the WAP community to get this done. It just may save the program.
