Low-Income Senior Pilot Program

Qualified Lewis County PUD customers may receive a reduced or zero daily Service Charge, based on their total annual household income, family size, and the age of the account holder.

To apply, contact Community Action Council at 360-736-1800 to schedule an appointment.

Only one discount per customer is allowed and will be applied to the residence where the senior resides. The discount will go into effect on the first day of the customer’s next billing period after the application has been processed and will continue for 24 months.

An application, income verification, and age verification are required every two years, or upon request of the District, to receive the monthly discount. If your income declines within the two-year period, please contact us to determine if you are eligible for a higher discount.



Customer, account holder, must be at least 62 years of age.
