Weatherization Assistance Program

FUNDED BY ALASKA HOUSING FINANCE CORPORATION and DOE

Thousands of qualified Alaskans have received free home weatherization in order to bring their homes up to safe, healthy and energy-efficient standards.

Weatherization adds years of life to buildings in Alaska's harsh arctic climate. Weatherization also brings the benefit of energy conservation, saving homeowners up to 50% off their previous heating bills.

The Weatherization Assistance Program is available to renters and homeowners throughout the state. A house may only be weatherized one time and eligibility is determined by the residents income and family size. Houses that were weatherized before April, 2008 may be re-weatherized.
