March 18, 2013 is the first day that residents who have their heat included with rent can apply for Byrd Barr Place’s Energy Assistance Program. To receive energy assistance, clients need to call 1-800-348-7144 to make an appointment. New appointment times are added every Monday at 8am. We will be visiting 20 subsidized housing buildings throughout the Seattle area in the next several months, so call 206-812-4940 to find out if we are coming to yours and save yourself an appointment!
