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.

Our 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.

KLCAS Lakeview office is located at 100 N D Street Suite 203, Lakeview, OR 97630.
