Home Energy Assistance

Washington Gorge Action Programs (WGAP)

No one should be forced to choose between paying for food and paying for heat during the cold winter months. If you or someone you know is having trouble paying their utility bills, WGAP can help. Home Energy Assistance is available to low-income families, persons of disabilities, persons of seniority on low and fixed incomes, and residents that are in danger of losing their heat source. Assistance can be provided for almost any heating source, including electricity, natural gas, propane, and wood. WGAP also provides Weatherization services. For more information call WGAP at (800) 755-1192 or (509) 427-8229.
