Project Share will receive $226,000 from Avista and its employees. The program provides emergency grants to help families meet energy costs regardless of the fuel used to heat their home. The program is administered by SNAP in eastern Washington and by community action programs in other areas of our service territory. In 2011, more than 2,100 households received emergency energy assistance through Project Share. The funds for this donation come from company profits and employee donations and are not included as a cost to customers in developing rates.

Avista is also partnering with 19 community service agencies in eastern Washington to make grants for energy assistance to qualifying Avista customers in need this winter by contributing $100,000 to the agencies.

The funds for the CARES donations come from a state utility tax credit Avista receives that is associated with low-income energy assistance programs. " />

Avista donates $326,000 for area energy assistance programs

— Households that are having trouble paying their heating bills this winter will receive help as the result of $326,000 in donations Avista is making to Project Share in the utility's service area of eastern Washington, northern Idaho and parts of southern and eastern Oregon and to 19 human care service organizations in eastern Washington.

"We know that the economy of our service territory continues to be depressed and that it is difficult for families to make ends meet. The organizations receiving these Project Share and CARES donations are an important safety net. They provide vital assistance that helps those most in need meet the costs of housing, food and medicine, and keeping their homes warm this winter," said Scott Morris, chairman, president and CEO of Avista Corp.
