WAFF provides home heating assistance to local residents, regardless of what kind of heating fuel they use. The Salvation Army administers WAFF and Washington Gas pays all associated costs for the program. Since 1983, WAFF has disbursed more than $27 million, providing assistance to more than 294,000 people.
WAFF Merger Funds Program:
Through its merger with AltaGas, Washington Gas has established the Merger Funds Program to broaden the eligibility for energy assistance for Washington Gas customers. Both low-income and moderate-income customers now may receive WAFF funds, in addition to the traditional WAFF assistance provided for other types of fuel.
