COVID-19 Support Program Available to Customers Facing Economic Hardship

Posted Friday, July 31, 2020

Washington State Governor Jay Inslee issued Proclamation 20-23.7, which protects the availability and affordability of essential utility services through a variety of measures for those economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Skagit PUD is committed to keeping our customers connected to essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic emergency. If you are experiencing hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for support, including long-term payment arrangements or bill assistance.

At Skagit PUD, we understand that our customers may be facing financial uncertainty and/or may have suffered sudden job loss due to COVID-19. We want to help each ratepayer with their individual needs. Skagit PUD is not disconnecting customers due to late payment at this time and is suspending late fees. It’s recommended that customers attempt to make payments if possible, even if it’s not the full amount, to avoid falling significantly behind. The governor’s proclamation does not relieve customers from the obligation to pay for utility services.

Our customer service team is available to make payment arrangements and plans that fit your situation. To speak with a customer service representative, please call (360) 424-7104. We are here to help Monday - Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you need financial assistance, Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) offers a Disaster Cash Assistance Program for qualified families or individuals. To get more information, please visit WashingtonConnection.org.
