Pittsylvania County Community Action Updated:05/2019

The Virginia Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) was established to increase the energy efficiency of residences, reduce the energy burden occupied by low-income persons and families with children, while ensuring their health and safety.  The WAP is funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) through the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).

The WAP program offers energy conservation and health and safety measures that include but are not limited to:

  • heating safety and efficiency checks, heating system repairs and/or replacement
  • sidewall insulation installed using the dense-pack method where applicable
  • attic insulation installed to program specifications

      Note:  The WAP regulators prohibit the installation of storm windows, storm doors and the underpinning of any type.

Individuals wishing to apply for WAP must submit an application for service and must meet eligibility requirements as set forth by OMB Circulars Poverty Guidelines,  they must provide proof-of income, proof of ownership (if it is a home-owned dwelling); obtain landlord permission (if dwelling is a rental unit).  

Note:  Owner-occupied units will receive precedence over rental units.

Applications are received from applicants by the housing staff and reviewed to determine qualification or non-qualification for program assistance.  (Note:  Applications can be obtained by visiting 18 South Main Street-Chatham, VA or they can be mailed to prospective applicants by calling (434) 432-9380.

  • Applications are then prioritized using the following prioritization process:
  • Elderly
  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Single-family/families of households with children
  • High energy user dwellings
  • Owner-occupied dwellings

Applicants are then placed on the program waiting list due to the volume of Weatherization requests
