N.C. Weatherization Assistance Program

The Weatherization Assistance Program helps low‐income North Carolinians save energy and reduce their utility bills. The program is administered through the Division of Energy, Mineral & Land Resources in the  N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The program receives annual funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and, through 2012, nearly $132 million from the federal Recovery Act.

The mission of the Weatherization Assistance Program is to improve energy efficiency, household safety, and educate the public about maintaining energy efficiency. The program's focus is on the elderly, the disabled, families with children, high energy users and the energy burdened. The goal of the Weatherization Assistance Program is to keep North Carolina citizens warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and safe all year long.

Weatherization assistance is available for single‐family homes, apartments, condominiums and mobile homes. You do not have to own your own home to be eligible. Renters must have written permission from their landlord. For more information, call (919) 707-9198.
