Washington Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) services are provided to the public through a network of 26 local community-based nonprofit organizations and local municipalities. Services include energy assistance, client conservation education, furnace repair and replacement, and weatherization. Energy assistance benefits are paid directly to energy providers and are based on a portion of a household’s annual home heating costs.
