Low-income members of Horry Electric Cooperative can apply for the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) to improve their home’s energy efficiency and comfort.
Weatherization measures provided by this program will reduce heat loss and energy costs by improving the thermal efficiency of dwelling units occupied by low-income households.
Households with incomes at or below 200 percent of the national poverty level are eligible. For a family of four, that’s $44,100. The program covers all of those under the set income limit, whether they own or rent, live in a single-family home, or a mobile home.
Those wishing to apply for WAP assistance should contact their local community action agency. In Horry County, call Waccamaw Economic Opportunity Council, Inc. at 843-234-4100. Their office is located at 1261 Highway 501 East, Suite B. The WAP Coordinator is Leamon Bellamy.
Please note that HorryElectric Cooperative does not take applications for WAP or handle inquiries about the program. This information is provided as a service to our members. Please contact the Waccamaw EOC for details.
