Energy issues corrected information
The CNMI Department of Public Works/Division of Energy would like to make correctiions to the press releases regarding the suspension of services under the Weatherization Assistance Program published on July 28, 2014, and Aug. 11, 2014. The Energy Office announced that while the WAP services are not being suspended, they are no longer able to accept new applications until further notice. Unfortunately, the program has already met and processed the total allotted number of applications from eligible applicants to receive services under this program year’s grant funding.
