The State of Ohio is an Equal Opportunity Employer and Provider of ADA Services. Office of Community Assistance, Home Weatherization Assistance Program Overview of Client File Structure of the Home Weatherization Assistance Program
Standardized File Structure and Required Documentation
How did we develop the standardized system? State Administrative Monitors gathered file checklists and sample file structures from grantees for one year. Most were similar, agencies had shared amongst themselves organically Best practices were identified, agencies offered input through the Policy Advisory Council State staff developed a monitoring tool that doubles as a file checklist for local agencies and disseminated with a date for implementation
And everybody loved it. Just kidding.

Next Steps … Standardized Forms This project is currently underway Working with utility companies that fund weatherization to standardize all forms required into a singular format when possible –Eliminate duplicate paperwork –Create more consistency in files Some forms are proving easier than others (mold, lead) – the biggest challenge is the Data Collection Form and the homeowner authorization form
Last thought … … and contact your friendly HWAP monitors if you have questions or concerns. There will always be something “out- of-the-box” in weatherization, something that fits no rule. The key is …
