The Weatherization Assistants Program (WAP) was established in 1990 to assist people with financial problems with a home-based weatherization service, with the goal of making them more self-sufficient and less reliant on government assistance.
The program was developed to address a wide range of issues facing the elderly, from rent increases to medical bills to homeownership and other financial burdens.
It has been expanded to cover a wide variety of older people, from the disabled to the unemployed and disabled veterans.
A program called the Weatherization Affordability Program, or WAP, is also designed to assist the elderly and people with disabilities to manage financial matters.
It includes a variety of services and supports, such as home energy audits and financial assistance with a mortgage and rental assistance.WAP provides financial assistance for all homeowners and renters, regardless of age.
It also provides an alternative to the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program for low-income seniors.
In 2017, the program cost $8.9 billion.
A study released in 2017 by the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that the Weatherizing Assistance Program was helping more than 7.3 million Americans.
The Weatherizing Affordable Program, created in 1990, is designed to help seniors and people who are disabled manage financial issues by offering free or low-cost weatherization services.
It offers services to those over 60 and those with disabilities and their dependents.
