Financial Assistance

If you are unable to pay your bill due to an unforeseeable emergency, please contact the Cooperative to discuss payment arrangement options.

If you are unable to pay your bill due to an ongoing financial situation, financial assistance may be available. We urge members to contact and apply for assistance through programs supported and offered by the Native Village of Barrow, the North Slope Borough, and the City of Barrow.

ASNA, through Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital, provides assistance to help members apply for the State of Alaska Heating Assistance Program. and other programs if available.

Members will need a copy of their most current bill, and if one was received, their delinquent or disconnect notice when applying to or speaking with the organizations listed above.
