Voluntary Customer Contribution Funds
Under Iowa law, energy utilities are required to operate a voluntary contribution fund where utility customers may add additional money to their monthly payment and have it deposited in a low income heating assistance fund. The money is then turned over to local social service agencies, such as the Community Action Program (CAP) agencies for distribution to needy low income persons needing assistance paying their energy bills. Because each gas and electric utility operates an independent fund and they go under such names as Project Helper, ICARE, ISHARE, etc. These contributions are generally recognized as tax deductible.
