Oregon HEAT assistance program.

Dozens of non-profit agencies participate in the Oregon HEAT program. It may be able to assist qualified low income and working poor households with paying their heating bills during the winter months. The various organizations all work together to set program terms, process applications, and disburse funds and grants to qualified families. All resources are limited and depend on donations. So funds are paid out on a first-come and first-served basis, so apply to the program as early as possible.

Regardless of the heating method a household uses, funds may be available provided program terms are met by the applicant. Oregon HEAT can help with the payment of natural gas, electricity, heating oil, propane or wood costs. While only a fraction of requests are able to be met due to limited funding levels, the agencies may be able to offer other help in the form of referrals or provide information on other federal government programs such as LIHEAP. There is just not enough money available to help every qualified low income resident in need of assistance.

The organizations that participate in the program cover only a certain county or portion of the state. Below you will find the social service organizations or community action agencies in Oregon that individuals can contact for more information or to apply.

If you can donate to Oregon HEAT, please do so. In most years, literally hundreds of thousands of low income families struggle to heat their homes. Many face disconnections. Your money will be put to good use and it allows people to give back to the community. Donations allow individuals to share the warmth with neighbors and the less fortunate. Any contributions from people or businesses will enable the non-profit to help thousands of families, many of them being children and seniors, stay warm.  To learn more on the donation process, you can dial 503-612-6300.
