The History of WAP

State & Local Energy Report recently released the documentary film, Filling the Gaps: The History of the Weatherization Assistance Program. Produced in partnership with the National Association for State Community Service Programs, it tells the complete story of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). Through interviews with the pioneers of WAP, the film shows how a modest plan to put people back to work grew into a sophisticated, technologically driven program that's played a major role in advancing building science.

Filling the Gaps looks back on the full history of WAP, from the Carter administration to the present, pausing for an in-depth look at ARRA that celebrates its achievements and counters the misconceptions. At its core, Filling the Gaps is the heartwarming story of the hardworking men and women of weatherization who have dedicated their lives to helping those who need it most.
