During these hard economic times we know that many families are feeling a pinch. Did you know that there is a program that can help you pay your utility bills? Households that qualify could get 50 percent off their Seattle City Light and Seattle Public Utilities bills for 18 months. For example, a family of three, making less than $3845 a month could qualify. See if you qualify.

Residents living in federally subsidized housing, including SHA (Seattle Housing Authority), Section 8, and KCHA (King County Housing Authority) are not eligible.

You can get signed up with one of our community partners at events around the city. Contact them for details.
