    Special Waiver Program

    The Special Waiver Program provides an $8 discount on the monthly customer charge for limited-income PUD customers. We use the income requirements from the State of Oregon to determine eligibility.

    Special Waiver Eligibility

    Special Waiver eligibility is determined through a screening process. Participants must be re-certified annually to keep the waiver. Call Customer Accounts (503) 397-0590 if you think you may qualify. 

    Find Out If You Qualify for the Special Waiver

    If you believe you may qualify for the Special Waiver, please contact Customer Accounts for a consultation.
