AEA’s Summer Games: Bringing Together a Community of Weatherization Champions
On August 4th, downstate New York Weatherization Assistance Program subgrantees kicked off a year-long celebration of the 40th anniversary of the date when the Weatherization Assistance Program was signed into law at AEA’s 2016 Summer Games in Central Park.
AEA staff and WAP network members enjoyed a day of softball, picnic fare and networking. Those who attended wore T-shirts commemorating the occasion with the Weatherization logo and the names of the 16 downstate WAP subgrantees on the back.
During the coming year, AEA plans a series of events to increase awareness of the contributions the Weatherization Assistance Program has made to the efficiency and affordability of the housing (in small homes and apartment buildings) where low-income New Yorkers live, and the health and safety of building residents.
