Weatherization Innovation Pilot Program
The Weatherization Innovation Pilot Program aims to accelerate innovations in whole-house weatherization for low-income families. A new program in 2010, these projects include new and nontraditional partners and weatherization service providers, leverage significant non-federal financial resources in addition to federal funds, and aim to improve the effectiveness of low-income weatherization through the use of new materials, technologies, behavior-change models, and processes.
The first round of Weatherization Innovation grants were announced in August 2010. The sixteen grantees are advancing weatherization through four main approaches: financial tools, green and healthy homes, new technologies and techniques, and workforce development and volunteers. You can read more about each project here.
