Residential Hardship

Are you past-due on your electric bill and have a financial hardship due to job loss, illness, military deployment, disability, or as a senior citizen? If so, you may be eligible for assistance through ComEd's Residential Special Hardship program. Income-eligible, residential customers can apply once every two years for grants of up to $500* based on need and availability of program funds.

*Grant amounts may vary while funds are available.

 

Qualifications

This grant is available to residential customers with household incomes up to 250% of the federal poverty level ($60,625 for a family of four) who demonstrate a hardship – job loss, documented illness, military deployment, senior or disability hardships, among others.

This option may be available to ComEd customers who receive traditional LIHEAP benefits.
