The importance of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) cannot be over emphasized. The Program prioritizes service to the elderly, persons with disabilities, and households with children. Since its inception in 1976, more than 7 million households have received energy efficiency improvements, such as heating and cooling upgrades, the addition of insulation, air sealing, improved home air quality and safety gains. The Program comprises a comprehensive series of energy efficiency measures that are based on sophisticated analyses of individual homes. These analyses take the whole-house approach, which maximizes energy and dollar savings. Because of this rigorous approach and analyses backing it up, weatherization has become a leader in advancing home energy science delivering energy-efficiency services to low-income households. WAP serves every county in the nation through its network of state and local agencies. CCSCT Weatherization Assistance Services are offered in the counties of Brewster, Crane, Culberson, Dimmit, Edwards, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, Kinney, La Salle, Maverick, Pecos, Presidio, Real, Terrell, Uvalde, Val Verde and Zavala.
