Dear PUD Customer,

The PUD has received CARES Act funding to offset delinquent utility bill balances for households that are experiencing a COVID related financial hardship. If you would like to apply for these funds, please complete and return the CARES Act Certification/Application form as soon as possible, but no later than November 30th.

Important items to note:

  • Only residential power and water customers in Mason County are eligible for this CARES Act funding.
  • Funding will be applied to past-due balances for customers with current payment arrangements.
  • Funding can be applied to the next billing statement for customers whose bills are already current.
  • Customers with delinquent accounts that have made no contact with us in recent months and/or have not set up a long-term payment plan offered by the PUD are not eligible to receive these funds. If you are one of these accounts, you need to contact Shiane to set up arrangements for your account before you will be considered eligible for CARES Act funding.

If you are carrying a past due balance on your utility account or need help with your next bill, please complete and return the form.

After you have completed the form, upload below AND THEN CALL KATIE ARNOLD TO VERIFY THAT SHE RECIEVED YOUR APPLICATION because a few customers have sent them in to her blank and we aren’t able to tell who they are:

  • Accepted file types: pdf.

Also, Community Action Council of Mason County and OlyCAP in Jefferson County are taking appointments for the next round of Canal Comfort Fund assistance payments. The Department of Commerce has also sent additional funding to the CACs for LIHEAP assistance. If you didn’t qualify before, you may now. Please contact the agencies to see if you are eligible and if so, how to apply.
