Cost of Living

Due to our remote location, the cost of living in Valdez is higher than other, comparable American cities. However, policies are in place to off-set some of these higher costs. The City of Valdez offers an annual Energy Assistance Program to relieve winter energy costs for residents.

For more information, please contact us at the Valdez Visitors Center. Call us or email us with any questions or stop by our building if you're already in town.
