KLCAS Energy Assistance
The Energy Assistance Program helps increase economic stability for people, communities, and the state by providing assistance with: power, natural gas, heating oil, propane, firewood, pellets, and furnace repair. This is made possible through federal, state, and other programs such as: Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Programs (LIHEAP), Oregon Energy Assistance (OEA), Oregon Heat, Low-Income Rate Assistance Program (LIRAP), Project Share, along with many other programs.
The Energy Assistance Program is designed to encourage regular utility payments, promote energy awareness, and educate participants on the reduction of energy usage. This is accomplished through energy efficiency and client education. Other services may also be available through this program such as: furnace repair, emergency reconnection and fuel delivery, blankets, as well as heaters.
Our program also works on creating partnerships within our community to utilize our resources to their fullest extent possible. Through this and other community partnerships, the Energy Assistance Program generated over $15,000 in donated firewood which helped heat over 125 households in Klamath County. To learn more about this and other donation opportunities, please visit our Support page.
