Keeping the lights on and water running are things many of us take for granted, but for thousands of local families, utilities are a luxury they are unable to afford.
Options for Assistance:
|Electricity (PGE or PPL), Oil, Propane, Wood, Pellets||The ONLY way to get assistance from Impact NW with any utility is to call the multilingual (English, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese) Energy Assistance line (503) 294-7444 and leave a voicemail when the line is open. There are no exceptions to this rule. The line is open every day Tuesday at 9:30am (during the winter months) but you can call the line at any time to hear when it will next be open. 211 can refer you to other agencies in Multnomah County offering Energy Assistance if you do not make it through on our phone line.|
|Disconnected Utility||Our rules have changed; we are no longer able to give priority to those with disconnected utilities. Everyone must call the phone line when it is open.|
|Natural Gas Bill (NW Natural)||We have NW Natural Gas walk in days on Mondays from 9:00am until 3:00pm or until we reach capacity for the day at 10055 E Burnside St. Clients needing assistance with NW Natural can also call the line (503) 294-7444 when the line is open.|
|Water/Sewer Bill||If you have City of Portland Water/Sewer you can apply for the discount program by contacting Madge Donahue at (503) 721-1740 or by walking in to the Dancing Tree office at 10055 E. Burnside St. Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00am until 6:00pm.|
