[ARCHIVED] Financial Assistance Available by Local Agencies for Utility, Rental and Mortgage Relief

Financial Relief (1)

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted our community and created a financial burden on many businesses and residents. In response to these impacts in March of 2020 the Governor issued Proclamation 20-23, preventing the disconnection of utilities for non-payment.  This moratorium is scheduled to end September 30, 2021 and customers will be responsible for all current and past due charges at that time. 

In light of this, the City is committed to working with customers to provide options for payment of utility balances, including the waiver of interest on accounts through December 2021 and payment plans. Additionally, we would like to provide information for a number of other agencies offering assistance for utility, rental and mortgage relief at this time. If you need assistance, we encourage you to contact our local assistance agencies as soon as possible as some funds are first-come, first-served.

Please click here to see the City's flyer that contains local agencies available to financially assist with bill payments if you have been financially impacted by the pandemic. If you are unsure of your qualifications, please call them directly or visit their websites. 

A complete list of local agencies that may be able to assist you is also available on the Customer Service Utilities page on the City’s website at: 

Please call the City of Port Angeles at 360-457-0411, or email with any questions, to create a payment plan or to find out more information about any of these programs.
