The Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP) assists families in lowering heating costs by improving the ability of the home to release and retain heat. On average, households receiving weatherization services typically reduce energy costs by over $150 per year. Services are available to residents of Wayne and Medina Counties. Many households qualifying for the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are eligible to participate in this program. Individuals/families with incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines may also be available for HWAP services. For further program or eligibility information contact CAW/M.
