Nonprofit offers energy assistance

The Spokesman-Review

With temperatures dropping into the low 30s, SNAP still has nearly $400,000 in energy assistance funds available for Spokane County residents having difficulty paying heating bills.

“We’re concerned that eligible families are not getting the assistance that is available,” said Margaret Belote, SNAP program director.

Nearly $7 million dollars has been allocated to help at least 17,000 Spokane County households with their energy costs this winter.

County residents who have not received energy grants during the season that began Oct. 9 should make an appointment with SNAP by calling (509) 242-2376 on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or visit the SNAP website.
