Neighbor to Neighbor

100% of customer donations stay in our community

What is the Neighbor to Neighbor program?   This collective fund gives a helping hand to customers who are struggling to pay their electric bills via community and customer donations. All donations are matched by the PUD.

2023 Funds Availability Update

NWCPUD’s Neighbor to Neighbor program is temporarily suspended until more funding is acquired. This page will be updated as soon as funds become available later in the year.

How much money is available for eligible households? 
Those who qualify for other state or federal assistance may now receive up to $150 twice in a 12-month period.  Eligibility is established according to federally defined poverty levels.  Verification of eligibility is determined by our Income Qualifying verification portal found below, or by our local Mid-Columbia Community Action Council / Community Action Partnership (CAP) office at 312 E 4th St. in The Dalles.

Am I Eligible?  You are eligible to receive funds from our Neighbor to Neighbor program if your account is currently in a past due state.
