Financial assistance available for power

The Home Energy Assistance Program is a federally-funded program which assists low-income individuals and families. Funds have become available and El Dorado Community Services is seeking individual and families who qualify.

Financial assistance is available from El Dorado County for electric and natural gas bills such as Sierra Pacific Power and Avista. The amount of assistance will be determined by the state of California and is based on the size of household, the total household income and household energy burden (percentage of energy bills as compared to income.)

People who think they might qualify for this program and wish to apply may call (530) 573-3490.
