The City of Ashland offers a variety of assistance programs for citizens who may have difficulty paying their utility bill.
Ashland Low Income Energy Assistance Program (ALIEAP) – Accepting application until January 31, 2019.
Each year, the City of Ashland sets aside money for the Ashland Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (ALIEAP) to assist low-income Ashland residents with electric bills during the cold winter months. Ashland utility customers whose income is at or below 65 percent of Oregon's median income can receive a maximum credit of $300 on their electric utility bill. Credits of 50% for senior and disabled persons may be given for up to six months, and credits of 50% for others may be given for up to three months. Applications are accepted beginning in October for assistance in the winter months and are not accepted after the first business day in February. Priority for the available funds from the program will be given first to seniors, then to disabled persons and then to others.
