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.
