Weatherization Assistance Program

The State of Nevada Energy Assistance program is comprised of two programs operated by the State of Nevada.

  • The Energy Assistance Program helps reduce energy bills by making payments directly to the energy company on your behalf.
  • The Weatherization Assistance Program helps you improve the energy efficiency of your homes by adding insulation, weather stripping, and minor home repairs.

Do I Qualify?

The State of Nevada provides both direct financial and weatherization assistance to low-income households who meet their income guidelines. These programs are funded by both federal dollars and money collected from all utility customers on behalf of the State through the Universal Energy Charge (UEC).

Eligibility is based on an annual projection of all gross income for at least the 30 - 90 days prior to the date of application or application review.

The total monthly gross income of all members of the household may not exceed 150 percent of the federal Poverty Guidelines as outlined below:

Energy Assistance Program

The program, administered by the Welfare Division, begins July 1 and applications are accepted through June 30, or until funds are exhausted, whichever comes first. Eligible households are awarded assistance once each program year. The assistance is based on the household's gross income and annual energy use. However, it is not intended to meet 100% of a household's expenses.
