Energy Assistance Funds Are Still Available
Funds are still available for low income Washington County residents who could use help with their electricity, natural gas, wood, propane or oil costs.
Community Action’s Energy Assistance Program operates year round, from October 1 through September 30, not just in the winter months.
People qualify by meeting income guidelines and do not have to have a disconnection notice or be out of fuel in order to get help. Households might be able to receive additional help even if they have already received some type of assistance this program year.
Appointments are available first come, first served at both of our Beaverton and Hillsboro offices.
To be screened for eligibility, people should call 503-615-0771 between 9 and noon, Monday through Friday. They can also send a request for an appointment online by clicking on this link: http://caowash.org/what_we_do/energy-rent-assistance/energy_request.html

Hope, Help & Change
The cost of living in our communities exceeds what many working families can comfortably afford. Paychecks don't always stretch to cover basic needs, so many families are struggling to make ends meet. Even though more people are working and Oregon's minimum wage is among the nation's highest, lower wages are not covering the basic costs of living.
For over 49 years, Community Action has been offering hope, help and change for families in transition. Community Action programs promote the birth of healthy babies, reduce the potential for child abuse and neglect, increase children's chances for success in school, and improve the quality and accessibility of child care. We also offer energy assistance and help to prevent homelessness.
Thanks to our Key Community Supporters
