Every October, the Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP) celebrates "Weatherization Month". The goal for NOCAC HWAP is to provide permanent solutions to reduce the energy burden on low-income families by installing cost-effective, energy-efficient materials and services and to achieve results in energy savings for income eligible individuals. We work to make homes safe, comfortable and energy efficient.
Our technicians use computerized energy audits and advanced diagnostic technologies, such as a blower door, to determine the most cost-effective measures for each home. They also assess related health and safety conditions.
Helping Others Stay Warm
The Richland Place/PATH Center recently received a donation of scarves, hats and blankets from the Florida Public Library. After a patron donated their excess yarn to the library, Librarian Paula Steele offered the yarn along with a variety of knitting and crocheting patterns to other library patrons and asked for their assistance in creating cold weather items for PATH Center clients. Several volunteers accepted her challenge and returned completed items to Mrs. Steele. NOCAC would like to thank everyone involved in the project for this thoughtful donation!
