Selected Aspects of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Efforts to Implement the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Weatherization Assistance Program
The Department of Energy's (Department) Weatherization Assistance Program (Weatherization Program) received $5 billion under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) to improve the energy efficiency of residences owned or occupied by low income persons. Subsequently, the Department awarded a 3 year Weatherization Program grant of $252 million to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania). This grant provided about a 10 fold increase over the $25.4 million in funds available to Pennsylvania for weatherization in Fiscal Year (FY) 2009.
