Energy Assistance

Program and status updates
October 2019


ISLAND COUNTY RESIDENTS (Whidbey/Camano Islands): 

Energy Assistance has ended its early scheduling opportunity for seniors (age 60+ years) and households where someone is receiving a disability benefit (examples: SSI, SSDI, VA Disability). Anyone who has missed this early scheduling opportunity will need to schedule an energy assistance appointment through the general scheduling methods. 

General scheduling for non-crisis, energy assistance appointments will begin starting on Saturday, November 2nd from 9am-2pm. Please call our office for an appointment. 

We may have a very limited number of crisis appointments available on a weekly basis. To qualify for a crisis, you must be facing disconnection within the current week or without heat (less than 10% propane/oil, or less than 3-day supply of wood). If you are in a crisis situation, please stop by or call our Oak Harbor office. 

Appointments can be scheduled by phone. Walk-ins requests for an appointment are available at our Oak Harbor office. Appointments are filled on a first come, first served basis.
