ComEd Joins Village of University Park to Bring Support Services Directly to Families in Need

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

To help individuals and families gain access to critical support services, including utility bill assistance, ComEd today joined a community resource fair organized by the Village of University Park, the Will County Department of Health, Crete-Monee School District 201U and other community organizations to bring much-needed services directly to those who need it most. ComEd’s appearance at the Community Health, Education, Jobs & Trades Resource Fair marks the first in a series of community events ComEd will attend in 2024. It builds on last year’s impact from ComEd’s award-winning Powering Lives Resource Fairs, which similarly brought community and business organizations together to connect thousands of low-income customers to bill-assistance, energy-management programs, health screenings, job training opportunities and other support options. More than two dozen businesses and community organizations were on hand at the resource fair, held at the village’s Town Center. ComEd’s participation in community resource fairs is the latest in an ongoing effort to expand the range of support options available to customers, particularly income-eligible families and individuals. Efforts include bill-assistance options, energy-management programs tailored for income-eligible customers, electric vehicle charger and installation rebates reserved for equity-eligible communities, and ComEd’s recent proposal to establish a new Low-Income Discount program to assist more customers with financial insecurity.
