EAF - Energy Assistance Funds

"Electricity is a basic necessity. Because of unexpected expenses, many customers can find themselves facing financial hardships. The Energy Assistance Fund (EAF) is committed to providing critical support to those who need it most during trying times.

"Since EAF started in 1982, Southern California Edison has partnered with the United Way of Greater Los Angeles to provide one-time bill payments of up to $100 for nearly 250,000 qualified Southern California households. Last year alone, 15,000 SCE customers received help!"

The Salvation Army will be at the Wonder Valley Community Center starting at 11 a.m., on Wednesday, July 25, to help residents fill out applications for EAF funds to pay a portion of their electric bill.

You will need three (3) things:
  1. An appointment. Call Teresa Sitz at (760) 367-9880, or stop in at the Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526-1/2 Amboy Road in Wonder Valley. Be sure to get a confirmation number for your appointment.
  2. Your most recent Edison bill.
  3. Your most recent proof of income.

There are 10 appointments open. If you don't get one this month, you can get one during the following months as long as the funds last.
