The National Association for State Community Services Programs (NASCSP) hired ICF and NBT Solutions to develop a web mapping solution that allows Weatherization Plus Health and Healthy Home providers to easily locate each other and work collaboratively on the whole-house approach to energy efficiency and safety improvements. Through an easy to use online map, users have access to a full library of providers including name, location, and contact information. The web mapping solution was built using a combination of open source geospatial tools and ESRI map services.
Weatherization Plus Health describes the evolution of the Weatherization Assistance Program from its traditional focus on heating and cooling energy conservation to an expanded focus on whole-house energy usage and whole-community efforts. The whole-house approach incorporates advanced technologies and addresses the comprehensive energy usage in low income homes, as well as related health and safety improvements. The whole-community approach enables weatherization providers to serve as a resource for community-based efforts to conserve energy, boost economic activity, and improve the environment.Visit Site More Works
