Intervenor Funding

About Intervenor Funding

The Oregon Public Utility Commission (PUC) is responsible for ensuring Oregon utility customers have access to safe, reliable and high quality utility services at just and reasonable rates. Intervenor funding is available to ensure that those qualified organizations who represent utility customers have the financial resources to participate in the PUC’s proceedings. The PUC must approve any agreement before financial assistance can be provided. See OAR 860-001-0120 and 860-001-0130 for qualification information.

Low Income and Environmental Justice Community Intervenor Funding

In 2021, the Oregon Legislature passed HB 2475 into law, which in part creates a new opportunity for groups to get funding to participate in PUC processes. This funding is available to groups that represent low income or environmental justice communities. The PUC is currently working to develop rules to implement this legislation, but in the meantime, is making funding available on an interim basis. Review the order authorizing this interim funding, which describes the procedure to access funding and the funds available. Also, take the time to review the FAQ Factsheet and a sample notice below, which can be filled out and filed in non-contested dockets to access funding.
