Weatherization Program  
 

 
 

What is weatherization?

Weatherization is adding insulation, sealing cracks, and making other changes that reduce heat loss, save you money on heating bills and make your home or apartment healthier. The federal government and Washington State offer weatherization programs, which Commerce runs, for qualified low-income households.

Should I call Commerce to get my home or apartment weatherized?

Commerce doesn’t weatherize houses directly. Commerce contracts with local agencies in your city or county that weatherize low-income homes and apartments.  Call a local agency near you on the
Weatherization Agency List to see if you qualify for weatherization services.
 

Who provides the money for weatherization?

Commerce receives funding from several federal government programs to pay for low-income weatherization.
 

Commerce also receives funding from Washington State, which is matched by the utility companies that sell gas and electric heat. This is called the Matchmaker Program.

These programs are provided to qualified low-income households in homes and apartments.
 

Weatherization data reporting by local agencies

All local agencies providing weatherization services in the Washington State Weatherization Program report their program results through the Weatherization Information Data System (WIDS). Access the Weatherization Information Data System (WIDS).
