Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program brings down energy costs for low-income New Yorkers. At the same time, it helps them use less energy and makes their homes healthier and safer.
What We Do:
Review how the building uses energy (an energy audit) and find ways to help it use less.
Seal buildings so heated or air-conditioned air stays inside.
Install lights and appliances that use less energy.
Upgrade or replace heating systems, windows, and doors.
Insulate attics and walls.
Install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, ventilation, and other health and safety improvements.
Who We Do it For:
Buildings in Manhattan that are
- North of 145th Street (including Marble Hill)
- South of East 96th Street and east of 8th Avenue (including Roosevelt Island)
- At least half of tenants in the building must be low income. This means their incomes are below 60% of state median income (tenants who get SSI, cash assistance, SNAP, or HEAP automatically count).
How to Sign Up:
Building owners must apply directly. Tenants cannot apply themselves.
