The City of Ellensburg has a Utility Customer Support Program aimed at supporting low-income and vulnerable households during the response and recovery to COVID-19.

Updated senior and disabled low-income utility service rates effective January 1, 2020. Here is a summary of the updated rates:

  • Low-income customers are defined as senior/disabled customers who are at or below 125% of Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Here’s a weblink to a table showing 125% of FPL Federal Poverty Guidelines - 2021 | Mass Legal Services 
  • The rate for low-income customers is 50% reduction for all utilities (e.g. water, sewer, stormwater, electric and natural gas).
  • The customer charge, too, is a 50% discount for low-income customers.
  • Disabled utility customers must meet medical guidelines found in Ellensburg City Code and the Revised Code of Washington State. Here are some weblinks to reference:
