Many PECO customers facing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic have a new resource to help pay the balance of their utility bills.
The Pennsylvania Homeowners Assistance Fund helps to support Pennsylvania homeowners who have financial hardships caused by the pandemic. The grant funding can be applied to a customer’s electric and natural gas bill to pay outstanding balances incurred during the pandemic. The maximum utility assistance is capped at 24 months or $3,000. The PAHAF program will also provide help with mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance, homeowner association fees and condominium fees. This is a state administered program and applications are now open to eligible Pennsylvania homeowners.
“We understand the financial hardships our customers are faced with at this time,” said Funmi Williamson, PECO senior vice president and chief customer officer. “The Pennsylvania Homeowners Assistance Fund will be a very valuable resource for homeowners. We are committed to our customers and the communities we serve and will continue to provide them with necessary support to help them through this difficult time.”
