Program Area of Interest 1 - Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP): Area of Interest 1: Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) DOE's Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) reduces energy costs for low-income households by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety. DOE provides funding to states, which manage the day-to-day details of the program. Low-income families receive services from a network of more than 900 local weatherization service providers. For more information, see the Weatherization Assistance Program Web site. Under Area of Interest 1, DOE is seeking applications in support of regional technical analysis and outreach. The specific objectives under this Area of Interest are to: 1. Implement Weatherization Plus (more information on this program can be located at which focuses on whole-house energy usage and whole-community efforts, as opposed to traditional heating and cooling conservation. 2. Increase technical and management skills, continuing to build the technical base of the program by enhancing the WAP management delivery system in states with great economic needs (i.e. training and workshops). 3. Develop climate/geographic specific strategies to enhance the WAP energy savings. Requests that support the hot climate initiative will receive the highest consideration. 4. Enhance the understanding of actual energy savings, e.g. by developing and verifying new audit tools and improving data collection methods to enhance program management metrics. 5. Support efforts to expand and enhance the Public Information Campaign (located at: 6. Through training or workshops, educate the states/WAP network on alternative financing methods (e.g. energy services performance contracts, energy efficient mortgages, utility on-bill financing), and increase the number of eligible homes weatherized.
