Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) provides free home energy upgrades to income-eligible homeowners and renters to help save energy and make sure your home is a healthy and safe place to live.
Weatherization works closely with its companion program, the Energy Assistance Program, to help permanently reduce the energy bills for low-income Minnesotans.
If your household qualifies, an energy auditor may evaluate your home to determine if weatherization is needed. The auditor would look for opportunities to make your home more energy efficient by sealing air leaks, adding insulation and checking if the furnace is working properly.
