Public Hearing: Weatherization Assistance Program 2020 Grant Application

Date & Time:
Thursday, January 9, 2020
1:00 pm

DNREC Auditorium
89 Kings Highway
Dover, Delaware

The DNREC Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy will conduct a public hearing (Docket #2019-WAP-CCE-0032) to consider comments from public on the 2020 Weatherization Assistance Program grant application. (Public Comment Period Closed)

The Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy, is applying for U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) 2020 program funds.  The mission of WAP is to reduce energy loss and consumption in the homes of low income Delawareans, creating healthier and more comfortable homes while reducing energy bills.

This new application continues the work outlined in DNREC’s previous Weatherization Program State Plans.  Delaware has two Subgrantees that implement the program at the county level, Catholic Charities in Kent and Sussex Counties and the Energy Coordinating Agency in New Castle County.

At the time of this notice, Congress was operating under a Continuing Resolution and the WAP allocations had not been determined.  Due to this delay in allocations, Delaware WAP has been instructed to develop the Delaware State Plan based on the prior year’s funding levels of $717,370, of which $154,493 is allocated for training and technical assistance.

For additional information on this matter, and to review the application, contact Cheryl L. Gmuer, Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy Weatherization Assistance Program – Program Manager, 100 W. Water Street, Suite 5A, Dover, Delaware, 19904, by phone at  (302) 735-3361, or by email at

Persons wishing to comment on this application may do so either orally or in written form at the public hearing on January 9, 2020.  In lieu of attending the public hearing, written comment may be submitted to the Hearing Officer via the online comment form at, via email to, or via USPS at the address below:
