Weatherization Program

The Weatherization Assistance Program is a no-cost program that helps lower-income households reduce their utility bills and increase energy efficiency. The program is implemented locally throughout Oklahoma by service contractors who contract and partner with the Oklahoma Department of Commerce to serve designated areas. The program is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy.

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce provides weatherization funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Oklahoma Department of Human Services to local nonprofits throughout Oklahoma that serve all 77 counties.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are low-income Oklahoma households (who either rent or own their home) and who are at or below 200% of the poverty level. Priority is given to those 60 years and older, differently abled, families with children, those with high energy burdens and those who are high residential energy users.

Application

Contact your local Community Action Agency to apply. Find your local agency by calling 405-949-1495.

Request for Applications: Weatherization Program Service Providers

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce (ODOC) is requesting applications for Weatherization Program Service Providers.

Background
ODOC has been responsible for the administration of the Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program and the Oklahoma Department of Human Services Low Income Home Energy Assistance Weatherization Program since 1977. The Weatherization Assistance Program’s mission is to “reduce costs for low-income families, particularly for the elderly, people with disabilities, and children, by improving the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety.” ODOC currently contracts with 8 (eight) non-profit service providers to serve Oklahoma counties’ low-income eligible families with weatherization services in residential single-family units and mobile homes. All current Subgrantees and current Oklahoma service areas are illustrated on this map.

In recent years, due to workforce capacity and increasing technical requirements, multiple counties in Oklahoma have been without weatherization services. ODOC, in collaboration with the current non-profit service providers (Subgrantees), developed a Weatherization Pathway Forward plan, to restructure the weatherization service areas and allocation formula in a more efficient way to better serve the service providers and Oklahoma families.

ODOC is issuing this Request for Application (RFA) to procure qualified weatherization assistance program service providers to administer ODOC’s high quality weatherization services to low-income families according to the new weatherization regional service areas map for at least the next five years (January 1, 2023 – March 30, 2028).

Please contact Kayla Cornett with any questions.
