    is to return home spend some quality time with family and rest before they start all over again the next day The terms anonymous and without much thanks or fanfare hit hard Regardless of policy organizational structures field standards good management etc the ultimate success of the Weatherization Program is really because of the work done by the field workers Without their commitment and quality work all the rest is pretty meaningless Policy and field standards make a difference when they re implemented on the jobsite otherwise they re just words on paper Perhaps many of you readers are like me on the surface you know and understand the tough conditions and the hard work of the WAP network field staff but may need that reminder to again put it all in proper perspective Thanks Rich for that reminder and an even greater thanks to the thousands of Weatherization field workers the auditors crew chiefs installer technicians and inspectors who are the real backbone of the WAP Posted by Bob Scott at 9 58 AM permalink Weatherization Day was a Success Tuesday November 12 2013 Another successful Weatherization Day has come and gone This year 18 different Grantees held events or public information sessions including ten Mayoral and Governor s Proclamations from places as diverse as North Carolina the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and New Hampshire A list of Weatherization Day events news clips invitations and proclamations can be found on waptac org here If you do not see your event listed or have more information you d like to share including pictures or invitations please send it to NASCSP at rstewart nascsp org NASCSP will be handing out awards to states that participated in Weatherization Day 2013 at the upcoming NASCSP Mid Winter Conference in March 2014 in Arlington VA so be sure you and your sub grantees are recognized for your hard work Holding site demonstrations writing letters to Governors or Representatives and doing public information campaigns are not activities reserved solely for Weatherization Day For tips or ideas visit http waptac org Public Information aspx Posted by Rebecca Stewart at 11 07 AM permalink The Government Shutdown and WAP Tuesday October 22 2013 The government reopened on October 17 after a 16 day shutdown Early on October 17 the President signed legislation reopening the federal government and funding it through January 15 th as well as extending the debt ceiling until February 7 2014 The funding is set at the House Republican backed level of 986 billion with a continuation of sequestration This means that for the next 90 days federal programs will be funded at last year s level For the Weatherization Assistance Program WAP the interim Continuing Resolution CR funds WAP at 68M Since the Program Year 2014 WAP funding cycle does not start until April 1 2014 the current CR may not be a final funding figure for WAP We will keep you informed as things progress Posted by Rebecca Stewart at 11 08 AM permalink Weatherization Day is NOT Shut Down Monday October 07 2013 Weatherization day is October 30 about three weeks away As we enter the second week of a federal government shutdown getting the word out about the Weatherization Assistance Program WAP is more important than ever While it is easy to brush off current events as not relevant and go about your business the federal government shutdown has real relevant effects effects that most people do not see or recognize This is your chance to show policymakers stakeholders partner groups and most importantly the public the impact that stopping the flow of federal funds to the WAP has on jobs low income people and communities The Weatherization Assistance Program Technical Assistance Center WAPTAC has a host of materials and resources to help you get the word out this October 30 Why not Plan a site demonstration These can be critical to building support from local policymakers and stakeholders who then see the benefits of WAP up close and personal Get a Governor s Proclamation State and local support has made a huge difference in funding levels in recent years build long term backing with a proclamation in your state county or city Tell the story of WAP through print media All it takes is one major newspaper picking up your story to really make an impact Start a social media campaign Engage your partners using WxDay2013 and see how many posts you can get And much much more available on WAPTAC All of these steps may seem small and to pale in comparison to the crises in Washington DC these days but small steps compounded across the country make a giant leap a leap we need to keep WAP running nationwide As always contact NASCSP with any questions or if we can be of any assistance in your Weatherization Day efforts Posted by Rebecca Stewart at 5 56 PM permalink Nine Weeks Until Weatherization Day Thursday August 29 2013 Nine weeks and counting to Weatherization
