Introducing the Ferndale Community Utilities Fund- APPLY HERE

In cooperation with the City of Ferndale, the Ferndale Community Service Cooperative is launching the Ferndale Community Utilities Fund. This program will help families hit by COVID-19 who are struggling to pay their Ferndale City Utility (water/sewer/storm water) bill.  With the generous support of the community, we can cover all or part of this bill for Ferndale families who are strapped by lack of work, illness, or other impacts resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. This is a temporary, emergency program that will run May-August.

Funding Update: Because of generous community donations, along with grants from the Whatcom Community Foundation and the Mary H Storer Foundation, we have reached our fundraising goal of $10,000!! Many Ferndale households will be helped thanks to the generosity of all of our donors.

Want to help?

We can’t support community members without your generous donations. Your gift is appreciated! Tax receipts available.

Families can apply ONLINE or by phone. Please call 360- 358-5257 for more information.
