WAP – Weatherization Assistance Program

University District Community Development (UDCDA) is proud to announce that we have helped over twenty families this past year with Weatherization (Energy Efficiency) assistance with funding up to $5,000.00 per home. Qualifying homeowners were eligible to receive a FREE Energy Audit, Furnace, Hot Water Tank/ or Boiler, Insulation and Air Sealing. Funding is still available, don’t delay call today and learn how you too can receive a new hot water tank and /or furnace.

Here is a testimonial from a Delaware District homeowner–Yes! We also provide services to the Delaware District 🙂

“I can’t thank the ladies at Gloria Parks enough for the proficient service they gave me when I needed it most. My furnace kept going in and out and I wasn’t sure what to do. I called my councilman and they told me to call UDCDA. I did and spoke with Gloria Bryant who told me they have a grant that could help me. She sent me the information. I then met with another lady who did my application. She said she would expedite my application before my furnace went completely out. I had a new furnace and insulation within 3 weeks. I’m so thankful. I didn’t have money to pay for a new furnace because I’m a senior citizen and I just get my SSD. 

Thank you Gloria and Terri for all your help. You all are so nice and professional.”
