Low-Income Assistance Programs

There are several programs available to help Puget Sound Energy's low-income customers pay their energy bills.

These programs are administered by energy assistance agencies and eligibility for some is based on monthly income.

LIHEAP Program

The federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides financial assistance to eligible low-income households to help pay their winter heating bills.

Our HELP program provides qualified customers with additional bill-payment assistance beyond that offered by the federal LIHEAP program.

The Salvation Army Warm Home Fund

Qualified low-income families who require emergency utility-bill assistance during the winter may receive help from the Warm Home Fund, which we offer in partnership with The Salvation Army. The fund is composed of voluntary contributions from PSE customers, employees and PSE. Contact your local Salvation Army unit for more information.

Weatherization Funding

PSE's energy-conservation program provides free weatherization assistance to qualified low-income households to help reduce energy usage. Funding covers energy efficiency improvements such as insulation, lighting and refrigerator replacements. PSE's low-income weatherization aid is administered by local agencies listed in this brochure.
