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.
2021 Funds Availability Update
How much money is available for eligible households? Those who do not 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 and verification of eligibility is determined by our local Mid-Columbia Community Action Council / Community Action Partnership (CAP) office at 312 E 4th St. in The Dalles.
How can I contribute? You can sign up by completing this Neighbor to Neighbor Donation Form to make a one-time payment, have a small monthly contribution automatically added to your bill each month, or have your bill rounded up to the nearest dollar amount with the ‘Roundup’ going to the program. You can also make your contribution on a separate check made payable to “Neighbor to Neighbor” and mailing it to our office or dropping it in one of our payment boxes.
All contributions are tax deductible.
