Low Income Utility Program Working Group
The Oregon Carbon Policy Office was formed in 2018, (HB 5201) to conduct research, analysis, and stakeholder engagement to inform a statewide policy framework to grow Oregon's economy while achieving Oregon's greenhouse gas reduction goals. As part of these efforts the Carbon Policy Office asked Oregon Housing and Community Services Department and the Public Utility Commission to convene a group of stakeholders to review available energy assistance programs, energy efficiency, and weatherization programs for low-income and historically underserved communities.
The working group should:
1) Review and evaluate the status of existing programs, services provided, and communities served. 
2) Identify needs and opportunities for new programming, or changes and expansion of existing programming as Oregon transitions to clean energy.   
3) Present its findings and recommendations to the Office of Carbon Policy no later than December 2018.
The Low Income Utility Program Working Group plans to meet monthly until the end of the year at which time it expects to present its findings. For more information about this group, please email Julie Peacock, julie.peacock@state.or.us.
