Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), operated by the Baltimore County Department of Planning Maryland - Division of Neighborhood Improvement in cooperation with the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Single Family Special Loans Program (SLP), helps eligible low income households with the installation of energy conservation materials in their dwelling units. These measures both reduce the consumption of energy and the cost of the maintenance of these homes. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Electric Universal Service Program, along with Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) and Washington gas utility companies.
Owner applicants must be income eligible (currently 200 percent of poverty) and able to prove ownership of the housing unit. For rental units, landlords must prove ownership and also agree to participate and invest in the property. Priority is given to homeowners who are elderly, disabled, have families with children or have the highest energy consumption.
For details about the program, view the Weatherization Assistance Program brochure (PDF).
