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.
