Weatherization Assistance Program Request for Proposal
Oregon Coast Community Action (ORCCA) is a non-profit organization that operates/ administers a weatherization (WX) program within the boundaries of Coos County. The program is funded by the
U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), other public utility funds and independent grants. The program’s goal is to reduce energy costs for low-income households by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes while ensuring their health and safety.
The Program prioritizes services to the elderly, persons with a disability, and families with children less than nineteen years of age. ORCCA’s professionally trained Weatherization staff utilize computerized energy audits and advanced diagnostic equipment to determine the most cost-effective measures appropriate for each home.
Typical measures may include: installing insulation, sealing ducts, mitigating air infiltration; reducing electric baseload consumption; installing or replacing ventilation systems, replacing windows, installing EPDM roofs, tuning, repairing or replacing heating systems, performing plumbing and electrical repairs, and other measures that can improve the energy efficiency of the homes and the health and safety of our clients.
