The Energy Assistance Program for the 2016-17 and 2017-2018 Seasons


Welcome to the sign up page for Energy Assistance.  For more information about the program and income requirements, please see the Energy Assistance page under the Services tab. Funding is limited until the start of the next energy season.

At this time anyone requesting assistance must call the HopeSource Ellesnburg office (509-925-1448). Please read below for who is currently eligible and information about start dates for the 2017-18 Energy Assistance Program.

PSE (Puget Sound Energy) Customers: At this time there is still funding for energy assistance through the PSE HELP program to help with your PSE utility costs (NOT propane, wood, oil, etc.). Assistance is only available IF you have NOT already received assistance through the PSE HELP program since October 1, 2016. Call the HopeSource office if you are unsure what type of assistance you did or did not already receive.

Kittitas PUD Customers: There is limited energy assistance funding available for people that are currently a PUD customer (the account must be in the name of someone living in the household) and 60 years or older.  Please call the HopeSource Ellensburg office to apply.

City of Ellensburg Customers: There is no additional energy assistance funding. See information below about the 2017-18 energy assistance season.

Additional Information: The Energy Assistance program includes an educational component that is separate from your appointment. HopeSource staff will discuss this with you when you call.

2017-18 Energy Season Information: Beginning September 8, 2017 at 9am: If you are over the age of 60, disabled, or have children ages 5 and under you will have the opportunity to add your name to a waiting list to receive an appointment. To add your name to the list, HopeSource must have prior documentation on file that shows you meet one of the categories above or you will need to bring physical documentation (e.g. ID, disability letter/award, birth certificate), to either of HopeSource’s offices or outreach events held by HopeSource.

Beginning October 10th at 9 am: For anyone not meeting the above requirements, HopeSource will begin accepting requests for appointments online through this website, in person, or via the phone (509.925.1448).
