NYSWDA, through its award program, recognizes individuals at all levels of service that unselfishly dedicate their energy and expertise to the Weatherization Assistance Program and its’ mission. These individuals may directly impact public policy, deliver a progressive local program held to the utmost standard, or demonstrate innovative office/field skills. 

The recipients of these awards impact and improve the lives of low-income energy consumers across New York State.  
The awards are our way of showing our appreciation for their hard work.
