Organizations are required to recertify every two years by completing a new application and attaching proof of tax-exempt status and a statement of how the discount was used in the previous year to directly benefit facility residents. Three months before your discount expires, your organization will receive a letter and recertification application from PG&E giving you the opportunity to reapply if your organization still qualifies under the current program guidelines.
