BELLINGHAM, WASH. (November 15, 2019) – Opportunity Council is continuing to schedule energy assistance appointments. After all appointments for this round have been filled, the next scheduling date will be in January.

To make an appointment, call (360) 255-2192 or (888) 586-7293, Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Appointments can also be scheduled online, www.oppco.org.  Please note: Online appointments are held at the Bellingham Office only.

A very limited number of crisis appointments may be available depending on funding and scheduling. To qualify for a crisis, you must be either facing imminent disconnection within the current week, out of heat (less than 10% propane/heating oil or 7-day supply of wood), or disconnected for nonpayment.

Crisis appointments become available on Mondays starting at 9 a.m. and once these appointments are filled, no more are available until the following week. All appointments are scheduled by phone or online and on a first come, first served basis. We are unable to accept walk-ins.
