The Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP) provides eligible Ohioans with assistance to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and reduce their energy costs. Ohioans participating in the HWAP will receive a home inspection to identify the services necessary to improve their home’s energy efficiency. Services are provided through local agencies in each county.

Who is Eligible for HWAP?

Ohioans with a household income at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for the program.

Priority is given to Ohioans who are older than age of 60, those with disabilities, those with children in the home, and households with a high energy usage and/or burden. All families who have received assistance any time during the last 12 months under Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Home Energy Assistance (HEAP) (does not include Emergency HEAP) are automatically income eligible for weatherization services. Please remember an application must be submitted in order to apply for services.

For July 2022-June 2023, the income levels are:

Size of Household Total Household Income 12 Months
1 up to $27,180
2 up to $36,620
3 up to $46,060
4 up to $55,500
