Pierce County Human Services (PCHS)

Pierce County is now accepting accepting applications for low-income energy assistance. Customers have to have a past-due amount to receive either the $500 Contingency Funds or the Arrears funds.  If you owe $500 or less you may qualify to get the $500 Contingency Funds; if you owe more than $500 may qualify to get the Arrearage.

If you need assistance in making your electricity bill PLEASE call the Pierce County Office to make an appointment. Please don’t wait until your power is disrupted.

P.C.H.S. would like us to remind our customers that your application may take up to 2 months or more to review, and that submission of an application does not guarantee eligibility for assistance.

For appointments and applications, please call 253-798-4328.
