Need help with your Electric, Natural Gas, Oil, Propane, Wood or Heat included in Rent Bill?!

The new program year for Energy Assistance starts on October 3rd, 2023.

CAC staff will be travelling to various towns in Whitman County to provide in-person Energy Assistance Appointments. Appointments are required at outreaches, as intake workers only stay as long as appointments are scheduled. Emergency drop-ins can stop in between 10am-Noon ~ you will have to check-in and wait for the next available appointment (this can be a few hours).

Missed the outreach in your town? Call the Community Action Center to schedule an appointment in a nearby town or to schedule a Phone/Mail-in appointment instead.
