Ashland Low Income Energy Assistance Program
Once again, the City of Ashland has set aside money during the budget process for the Ashland Low Income Energy Assistance Program to assist low-income residents with electric bill costs during the cold winter months.
Eligible Ashland residents include those whose income is at or below 60 percent of Oregonís median income. These levels are based on household income and household size. Qualified recipients will receive a credit on their electric utility charges. Credits of up to 50 percent will be given to seniors and disabled persons for up to six months and credits of 50 percent to other qualified residents for up to three months. The Maximum allowed credit is $300.00 for either group.
Beginning October 1, applicants may call the request line at (541) 552-2038 to request a Low Income Assistance application packet be sent to them or pick one up at the Utility Billing Counter at City Hall at 20 E. Main St.
If you know of someone who might qualify and needs assistance, please let them know about this program. The deadline to submit the application is February 1, 2016.
