Our yearly survey of the state and local weatherization providers, which determines the funds available from all sources, has just been published by our research partner the National Association of State Community Services Programs. The summary can be found on our Energy project page here.
The total reported was over $1.04 billion dollars
, including $223 million of DOE funds. This figure is consistent with post-Recovery Act years, when all funding [in combined surveys] has remained higher than $900 million. (Note: 50 states and DC were surveyed)
was once again the largest source of funds. States provided more than $400 million to their weatherization programs, typically under different, more flexible regulations.
Non-federal funds in 41 states
, predominately the utility ratepayer funds for low-income efficiency programs and some state taxpayer funds, added up to more than $394 million. There was huge variation among states regarding the amount of non-federal resources delivered by the local WAP organizations.
