Spokane Neighborhood Action Partners (SNAP) is opening up phone lines on December 19 to help pay energy bills.

They released a pamphlet detailing the offer, explaining that different household income levels would determine the amount of financial assistance. Before Wednesday, they were only able to assist people with imminent shut-off notices.
