The Energy Assistance season remains open for the 2019-2020 year.
While our main offices are closed due to COVID-19, energy assistance is being provided remotely. To submit your application and supporting paperwork, email the documents required below to email@example.com.
The Energy Assistance Program provides a one-time per program-year grant to assist eligible low-income households with heating costs. To apply, you must live within the city of Tacoma and meet the income guidelines.
Payment is made directly to the heating vendor and the amount paid will be based on your last 12 months’ heating costs.
