Utility Customer Contribution Funds Report


Voluntary Customer Contribution Fund (CCF)

Under Iowa law, energy utilities are required to operate a fund that allows utility customers to voluntarily contribute money for deposit in a low income heating assistance fund. The contributions are used to assist low income persons in paying their energy bills and with weatherization. Each gas and electric utility operates an independent fund under such names as Project Share, RECare, I CARE, etc. These contributions are generally recognized as tax deductible.
