Energy Assistance

These days, your power bill is so much more than just keeping the lights on.

From stovetops, computers and heat to life-sustaining medical devices, electricity is essential for modern living. When it’s in danger of being disconnected, there’s a lot on line–especially for children, seniors and those living with disabilities.

The Energy Assistance Program provides grants to assist qualifying households with heating and energy costs. For Tacoma residents meeting income guidelines, funds are provided once per program year. The program will also provide education on energy conservation and additional resources for portable air conditioning units and more, depending on funding availability.
