Qualified households may be eligible for Wahkiakum Public Utility District (PUD) assistance through CAP (Lower Columbia Community Action Program). Go to the CAP website or contact Community Outreach to sign up for this federally funded program that assists low-income households in making home heating more affordable. This program may help avoid shutoff of utility services during the winter months, to help provide a warm, safe, and healthy environment for families. Clients must meet income eligibility guidelines to qualify. The best time to call the CAP office to find out when to sign up for this program is during the first week in November.
