PUD Offers COVID Relief Grant to Small Businesses

Columbia River PUD is offering support to local small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. At their November 17 meeting, the PUD Board of Directors unanimously voted to offer a credit of up to $200 toward the electric bills of small business owners who have been affected by Governor Brown’s executive order.

To apply for the grant, please call us at (503) 397-0590.

This incentive was proposed in response to the recent executive order issued by Governor Brown, which adversely affected many local small businesses. Columbia River PUD hopes to help mitigate the economic impact to these businesses that are so important to our local community.

Businesses that have established electric service as a small business with Columbia River PUD under Rate Schedule 20 are eligible.

Grant funds targeted toward economic development support will be used to fund this program. In order to access these funds, please complete the form below.

Grants will be issued on a first come, first served basis and are a one-time benefit.

Residential customers who have been affected by COVID can also continue to take advantage of the GLOW Program. For more information, please call our Customer Accounts Department at (503) 397-0590.
