MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

City of Memphis re-introduced a program to help people with their energy bills.

Division of Housing and Community Development Director Paul Young is at the front of bringing back the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP).

The program helps low-income households reduce their MLGW bills through energy efficiency.

Households in Shelby County that earn less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level can apply for the program. If accepted, WAP will pay for upgrades to the house's insulation, air sealing, duct sealing, caulking, weather stripping, lighting, HVAC, and windows.

The program started up at July 1, 2017 and will run through June 30, 2018.
