Currently, the Lopez Island Family Resource Center is announcing that assistance can be had in the areas of energy and tax services.

This doesn’t mean you have to be in crisis to qualify for the assistance. To be eligible, you need to own or rent your home, pay energy bills, and your income needs to be at or below the qualifying guidelines. We can help you figure out the income qualifications.” Interested parties can contact the LIFRC and staff members can assist clients with the financial tables. Haber continued. “You can get help paying energy bills, and there are other benefits. Opportunity Council members will even come out and do an energy assessment on your home for free...what they call an energy conservation education. They can also provide weather stripping and better light bulbs and information on how to weather-proof your home,” said Haber.
