Project PRIDE stands for Providing Relief for Individuals Dependent on Energy. The program was established in 1982 and has paid out over $3 million to help local people in need.
Project PRIDE is primarily funded by contributions from PUD customers. Funds are used to provide one-time grants for families and individuals who need help paying their energy bills.
Families or individuals whose income is less than 200% of the federal poverty guidelines, or who have experienced sudden income loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are eligible to apply. Customers must have their most recent PUD bill and income documentation for the previous 30 days.
