As we push through another Seattle winter, we want to make sure all children, elders, families, and members of our community stay comfortable inside their homes this season. Through our energy assistance program, we have funding to help pay for utility bills.
Byrd Barr Place is here to help the community secure federal funds through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and Puget Sound Energy’s Home Energy Lifeline Program (PSE HELP) to cover electric, gas, wood, propane, and oil costs. Each program has its own eligibility requirements, with funding now available to more people than in previous years! Those who have applied for energy assistance in past years can apply again for funding this year.
Learn more about eligibility.
We are here to help you apply for energy assistance. Please reach out to us by phone at 206-812-4940, by email at email@example.com, or in person at the Byrd Barr Place temporary food bank with any questions you have about the application process.

The Stable Home program is intended for Eastside King County families with dependent children who are facing eviction or need assistance with first month move-in costs. The purpose of this program is both to ensure families have the necessary funds to move into permanent housing, and to provide those facing possible eviction with the opportunity to remain in their home and avoid having an eviction judgment on their record.
*If you are eligible you will be placed on a lottery and will be contacted if selected.*
