Our Assistance Programs Are Still Here For You
While temporary COVID-19 emergency response measures have ended, our commitment to our customers will never change. The Energy Assistance Fund (EAF) can provide short-term relief, we can also help you find the right long-term assistance programs for your needs.
Help Families Keep the Lights On
The Energy Assistance Fund (EAF) is SCE's charitable, non-profit organization that offers direct payment assistance to those in need, including seniors on fixed income, young families with children, and veterans. Your contribution isn't just about helping families with their bill - it's about preventing families' food from spoiling in the refrigerator and allowing them to afford other important expenses, like medication or clothes for their children. Please invest in our communities.
Energy Assistance Fund – What is it?
Your Pennies Can Help Power a Home>
Electricity is a basic necessity. Because of unexpected expenses, many customers find themselves facing financial hardship. The Energy Assistance Fund (EAF) is committed to providing critical support to those when they need it most.
In partnership with the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, we have provided one-time bill payments of up to $200 for nearly 300,000 qualified Southern California households since EAF started in 1982. Last year alone, 10,000 SCE customers received help.
Just a few pennies can make a difference.
