CHICAGO - Residents who are suffering a financial hardship due to job loss, illness, military deployment, disability, or as a senior citizen 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.
Temporary satellite locations are open now to assist customers with Residential Special Hardship applications.
Grant amounts may vary while funds are available.
This grant is available to residential customers with household incomes up to 250% of the federal poverty level ($59,625 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.
ComEd customers who participate in PIPP are not eligible for the Residential Special Hardship program.
