A Look Back on Weatherization Day 2017

Each year we mark national Weatherization Day on October 30th, as part of a larger Energy Action Month. Weatherization Day is an opportunity to highlight the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) by holding events, issuing proclamations, and getting press coverage. Weatherization Day is also used to demonstrate the impact of WAP by sharing program facts and featuring clients in local communities. Another goal is also to increase awareness of WAP among two key audiences: leaders and decision makers at the federal, state, and local levels as well as potential clients in need of weatherization services.
