The Statutory Purpose:…to develop and implement a weatherization assistance program to increase the energy efficiency of dwellings owned or occupied by low-income persons, reduce their total residential energy expenditures, and improve their health and safety, especially low-income persons who are particularly vulnerable such as the elderly, the handicapped, and children.Title 42 of the U.S. Code, Chapter 81, Subchapter III, Part A, 6861

“Standards…shall include a set of procedures to be applied to each dwelling unit to determine the optimum set of cost-effective measures, within the cost guidelines set for the program….Such standards shall…take into consideration the following factors-

The cost of the weatherization material;

Variation in climate; and

The value of energy saved by the application the weatherization material.

There is a tide in the affairs of men.Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;Omitted, all the voyage of their lifeIs bound in shallows and in miseries.On such a full sea are we now afloat,And we must take the current when it serves,Or lose our ventures.
