2018 Washington State Low-Income Weatherization Program Policy Documents

The current policies for the Washington State Low-Income Weatherization Program are found in two sets of documents: Weatherization Manuals and Program Policy Memos.

The Weatherization Manual contains policies and procedures, specifications and standards, and supporting documents. They are to be followed from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. (The manual edition to follow is determined by when the project was audited. For example: A project audited on June 30 still follows the 2016 rules; a project audited on July 1 follows the 2017 rules.)
