Forty-five years later, the WAP has evolved into nationwide energy efficiency program administered by building science professionals that has served more than eight million low-income people in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, five U.S. Territories, and three Native American Tribes. The WAP continues to provide cost-effective energy efficiency savings to low-income Americans, while now also improving health and safety, supporting a robust national workforce, and utilizing cutting edge technology.
From its roots in the 1973 oil crisis to expansion during the 2008 Housing Crisis to its current role in addressing indoor air quality concerns in the COVID-19 pandemic, the WAP has always changed and improved with the times. Now that WAP has finished its 45th year, we have the opportunity to celebrate nearly half a century of success in meeting our program’s mission. Tioga Opportunities, Inc. is proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary and help households across our area improve their quality of life through our Weatherization Assistance Program.
