Spring is here, but for some, in this difficult economy, the mild winter didn’t ease the burden of their home energy bill. Each year Avista partners with regional community action agencies to provide qualified households financial assistance to pay their utility bills.
“Typically, energy assistance funds are depleted by this time. This year, however, there are still funds available to help those in need who have not yet received energy assistance,” said Anne Marie Axworthy, Avista’s director of community development. “We’re working closely with our community partners to increase awareness of the funds and to help people access them in a timely manner.”
