ComEd Partners with Federal, State Agencies to Offer Utility Payment Assistance this Fall/Winter

Logo - ComEd - LIHEAP - PIPP - Energy Savings

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federal program that can help you stay warm in during winter by providing eligible customers with a one-time payment towards your energy bills. Benefits are available once per program year, September 2021 through May 2022, or until funds are exhausted. Whether you rent or own your home, LIHEAP offers financial help to limited-income households to pay heat and electric bills.

 

The Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) is a choice within Illinois LIHEAP to help manage energy bills year-round. You will be placed on a Budget Billing plan that is subsidized by a monthly PIPP benefit amount, determined by a percentage of your household income. Each month, you receive a PIPP benefit towards a portion of your Budget Bill amount. If an on-time and in-full payment is received, you may also receive a monthly arrearage credit, if applicable.

 

Applications for LIHEAP and PIPP can be submitted online, by phone or in person and are available at your Local Administering Agency. 

 

Visit LIHEAPillinois.com for details.
