  • Central Housing List – Lane County’s Coordinated Entry program is one central list that homeless families can get onto that will place them on the wait list for all of the community agencies that provide housing assistance (i.e. Catholic Community Services, St. Vincent De Paul, Shelter Care, Looking Glass, etc.).
  • Oregon Telephone Assistance Program (OTAP) – Free phones are offered through the Public Utility Commission to qualifying low income individuals. People can apply by email, phone, or print out application from on the OTAP website.
  • Energy Assistance, Energy Education, and Weatherization Programs – The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) opens in Lane County  Wednesday, November 1st. ON­LINE WAITING LIST This year, households can get on  an agency’s LIHEAP waiting list one of two ways. They can call a LIHEAP agency, or  they can go on­line and place themselves on the list. We believe the on­line option will  be faster and easier than calling an agency. To use the on­line option, the customer should go to: www.lanecounty.org/energyassistance
