Small Business Assistance Program

​We are here to support small business customers struggling to stay open in the face of COVID-19.

Program Details

The Small Business Assistance Program provides eligible small business customers, whose service has not been disconnected, with a one-time grant equal to 30% of their total ComEd balance (up to $1,000) that will be applied to the past due balance and the remaining balance can be spread over a payment plan of up to six months.

Small business customers whose service has been disconnected within the past 30 days may be eligible for a one-time grant equal to 30% of the total ComEd balance (up to $1,000) to help reconnect their service if accompanied with a payment of the remaining balance due.


Small business customers applying for this program must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have an active ComEd service account (includes customers disconnected within the past 30 days).
  • Use less than 100 kilowatts (kWs) of peak demand. To confirm the amount of kWs your business uses, reference your ComEd bill (see sample bill).
  • Have received a service disconnection notice from ComEd or currently disconnected.
  • Have not received any other financial assistance from ComEd – including Nonprofit Special Hardship grants – in 2020.
