    (b) If you are outside Cowlitz or Wahkiakum County and need energy assistance click here: Washington State LIHEAP .
  3. You MUST be income eligible. Check the Household Size and Income chart link at the top of the page.

Part II: Getting An Appointment

  1. Appointments are scheduled on a first come first serve basis (for HEATING assistance ONLY on this web site). If you need help with anything other then HEATING assistance, please come into the CAP office.
  2. You will need to fill in: total number of people in the household, last 4 numbers of your Social Security number, your name, birthdate, address, phone number and check the boxes for all income types in your household. You will want to have all required information available before continuing.
  3. When you complete the pre-application questions you will be prompted to select your appointment time for your financial review (to provide income documentation and sign paperwork).

Questions or Problems

  1. What do I need for my appointment? In general you will need - social security cards for all household members, income for the 3 prior months to your appointment for all household members, a billing history printout obtained directly from PUD and other documentation on your heat source if your primary heat source is not electric. Additional documents may be required based on household circumstances.
