Energy Assistance and Weatherization Resources

Use the list below to find links to weatherization services, energy assistance, and other resources for extreme weather in your county. We strongly recommend contacting the agency in your area for information on these programs, especially if your household income is under 150% of the Federal Poverty Line. In 2023, that’s $45,000 for a family of 4. 

Many agencies below provide weatherization services: installing heat pumps, new windows, insulation, and more for little to no cost. Many of these services are available to both homeowners and renters.

Each area agency can connect you with programs to help save you money on utilities and increase energy efficiency in your home. The first step will be applying for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Once that is processed, you may also qualify for weatherization services and an A/C unit.  Weatherization can lower energy bills, help with energy efficiency, improve indoor air quality, keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and result in a safer, healthier living space. These improvements may be helpful for you if your house feels cold or needs insulation, if your heating bill is high, or if air leaks into your home from around windows and doors. Weatherization improvements can help better protect your home against weather and cannot be used to justify rent increases. 

Depending on your area and income, you may also qualify for energy assistance: payments toward your heating or water bills. Qualifying households may receive payments toward utilities through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Anyone interested is encouraged to reach out during the summer, but you can apply any time of the year. If you are unable to schedule an appointment in the fall or winter due to limited availability, please try again the following spring. LIHEAP is not only for households in crisis or currently unable to pay energy bills. Many eligible households utilize the program every year.

Montana

Qualifying households may receive payments towards utilities through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) or Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP), or through a one-time interest-free grant for assistance paying for an energy emergency, such as furnace repair or utility disconnect (Energy Share).

Applicants for LIHEAP/LIHWAP/Weatherization will need to complete an application including verification of identities (including photo identification or birth certificates and proof of citizenship or “lawful entry into the US with the intent of establishing permanent residency”), incomes, resources, utility bills for all household members over 16. Be advised that LIHWAP is only funded for a limited period. For additional Weatherization information, refer to Healthy Homes Webinars from Montana State University.

Applicants for Energy Share will need to complete an application including the bill they are seeking assistance towards, income verification for all household members over 18 for the past three months, monthly expenses reflecting repayment of the loan, a 30-day bank statement, and a letter of circumstance. 

Please see below the available programs and applications specific to your area. Eligibility in Montana is standardized statewide and determined based on income and resource limits. If your household received SNAP, Social Security, or TANF, you may automatically qualify. To determine your eligibility, refer to program guidelines.

Tribal members will see a tribal-specific Weatherization application under your reservation below. For Energy Share applications, please also look under your county resources. 

Washington

Qualifying households may receive payments toward utilities through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), available statewide. Application instructions and contact information will depend on the area where you live. You can find information about LIHEAP and LIHWAP specific to your county and details on how to apply below.
