SNAP Has Energy Assistance Appointments Available!

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - SNAP still has Energy Assistance appointments available. The easiest way for people to make an appointment is on their website at SNAPWA.ORG. Just click the thermostat on the home page to start the appointment process.

Their phone lines (242.2376) are still open between 8:30-3 weekdays, but people should expect a hold time of anywhere between 5 and 60 minutes, which is why SNAP is directing you to the web – it's open 24/7 until appointments are full, and it's very quick and easy.

To qualify people need to live in Spokane County, be at or below 125% of Federal poverty guidelines and prove they're responsible for their heat burden (name needs to be on their bill).
