COVID Bill Assistance – Puget Sound Energy

Soon Washington’s utility moratorium will be ending, so disconnections that were suspended during the pandemic, will resume, by way of a field visit or automatically, beginning October 1, 2021. Puget Sound Energy has launched an assistance program for customers who may have been impacted by the pandemic. It’s called CACAP and if you qualify, we’ll credit your account for past-due balances up to $2,500. If you’ve applied before, even if you’ve already received assistance, we encourage you to reapply, as you may qualify for additional support. Also, by applying for CACAP, we will automatically start your application for HELP, our other energy assistance program, which may provide you with additional financial assistance. Contact your local Community Agency to complete the HELP application. You may qualify for PSE HELP and LIHEAP programs if your net monthly income does not exceed the limits listed in the table here. Use numbers as a guide only. For PSE HELP and LIHEAP contact your local agency to begin the application process or get help with questions.
Instructions:

Visit pse.com/help to see if you qualify, or for LIHEAP and HELP contact your local Community Action Agency at 1-866-223-5425.

Amber Grant

(Expires: September 30, 2021 )
WomensNet founded the Amber Grant Foundation in 1998. The Foundation was set up with one goal in mind: to honor the memory of a very special young woman, Amber Wigdahl, who died at just 19 years old — before realizing her business dreams. Today, WomensNet carries on that tradition, giving away at least $10,000 every month in Amber Grant money. We've also expanded our grant-giving to include other grants such as our Annual $25,000 Amber Grant. More information here.
