April 17, 2020- Disaster Cash Assistance Program
The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services is activating the Disaster Cash Assistance Program, or DCAP, beginning April 17, 2020. This program is intended to help some Washingtonians meet their basic needs during the state of emergency caused by COVID-19 state of emergency.
Millions of Americans have already received their Economic Impact Payments (Payments) authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) continues to calculate and automatically send the Payments to most eligible individuals, however some may have to provide additional information to the IRS to get their Payments. For more information, please see the links below.
Puget Sound Energy will not be disconnecting customers for non-payments at this time. PSE has also received approval from the Washington State Utilities and Transportation Commission for a waiver that allows PSE to wave late fees.
