More Than 10,900 Homes and Counting as Stimulus Program Continues
NASHVILLE – Tennessee is a leader in the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). Nearly 11,000 homes have been weatherized across the state through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) since July of last year. The state was recently recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy for its “dedication and extraordinary efforts” toward the goals of the Recovery Act. Only eleven other states were recognized. A network of 18 community and local government agencies has helped Tennessee reach its WAP goals.
