Low income Weatherization Assistance Program

The federal Weatherization Assistance Program was established to help low-income families and individuals improve energy efficiency and lower energy costs, as well as assist with energy-related health and safety issues in the home.

In support of the program, SRP provides $725,000 per year to the Arizona Community Action Association to assist in their efforts to improve energy efficiency for low-income homeowners. SRP provides up to $6,000 per eligible household for energy-efficiency home improvements on top of federal funding. Improvements could include:

  • Insulation
  • Window shading
  • Low-flow showerheads
  • Faucet aerators
  • Air conditioner duct seals
  • Space heating and cooling system equipment maintenance and tune-up
  • Evaporative cooler tune-ups or motor upgrades
  • ENERGY STAR-labeled compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs

Qualifying households may also receive additional support through federal funding for installing these types of energy-efficient measures in their homes. As a guideline, eligibility is based on the number of family members in the household and total household income:

Persons in family
Annual household income
1 $24,120
2 $32,480
3 $40,840
4 $49,200
5 $57,560
6 $65,920
7 $74,280
8 $82,640
For families with more than 8 persons, add $8,360 for each additional person.
