Benton PUD’s COVID-19 Customer Assistance Program Extended - Available to Qualified Residential and Small Business Customers
Benton PUD has extended their customer assistance program through the end of the year. Qualified past due residential and small business customers may receive a bill credit up to $200 and payment matching.
Governor Inslee has issued a final extension of the utility disconnect moratorium, which will now expire on September 30, 2021. While good intentioned, the Governor’s moratorium has resulted in many customers accumulating significant past due balances and a future financial burden. As a not for profit, locally controlled business, Benton PUD exists to meet the needs of our customers which we have proudly been doing for 75 years. In response to the financial hardships resulting from COVID-19, we offered the Customer Assistance Program beginning in May and are now extending the program through the end of the year. For qualifying customers, this is an opportunity to reduce or eliminate past due balances.
