ComEd launched a utility assistance program for those facing unexpected medical expenses

The HEAL program helps ComEd customers pay their electric bill when they experience unexpected medical expenses. HEAL comes from the Hospital-Based Energy Assistance and Long-Term Health and aims to provide funds to eligible customers facing unforeseen hospitalizations or long-term outpatient care.

Assistance is offered to military families, veterans, senior citizens and people who have experienced job loss, illness or disability.  Assistance is also available to non-profit organizations experiencing hardship. ComEd helped more than 22,000 customers with financial grants last year.
