Utility Assistance Program

Past Programs
Utility Assistance Program
SDC-CDS offered residential households utility assistance. This program was available to Skagway residents who are making at or below the HUD guidelines for low-income. The support available to households each month depended upon the amount of funds SDC was able to raise or procure for the program. 
  • Second-time program users needed to show proof of having applied for the State of Alaska's Heating Assistance Program. Find the Heating Assistance Application HERE

  • Funds were not paid directly to applicants. A credit was placed on the applicants' account/s with the utility provider/s.
