Emergency Assistance Grant From PHI Community Foundation

Dec 20, 2010


Thomas Graham, President of Pepco Region, announced a grant from the PHI Community Foundation to the Greater Washington Urban League to provide emergency electric and gas utility assistance to District residents at the League's 12th Annual Golf Tournament. This is the fifth year that Pepco has provided funding to the League for emergency utility assistance. Last year's grant of $70,000 served 157 families representing 449 persons.

Community residents must apply for assistance and be approved. The maximum amount available for assistance is $500, which can be divided between electric and/or gas accounts. Recipients can only receive assistance once during a 12-month period and must meet eligibility requirements. Eligible recipients are those who meet income requirements and provide all required documents. All support is based on the availability of funds.
