Atlantic City Electric Urges Customers to Apply Now For Grants To Help Pay Their Energy Bills

Customers can now apply for LIHEAP Grants to help pay past due Atlantic City Electric balances.

Atlantic City Electric is encouraging residential customers to apply for energy assistance and take advantage of funding that is now available through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which began accepting applications for the current program year on October 1, 2020.

Customers can receive more than $1,000 in grant support through LIHEAP toward their energy bill by applying for assistance. But customers must act now, as LIHEAP is a first come, first served program and is only available until money runs out.  

In addition to LIHEAP, customers who may be financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic are urged to contact the company now to establish payment arrangements. Atlantic City Electric recognizes the financial challenges some customers are facing as a result of the ongoing pandemic and will continue to work with each customer individually regarding the status of their account.

South Jersey residents can apply for assistance by downloading an application though the Department of Community Affairs website, by contacting their local LIHEAP Agency, or by calling 800-510-3102. Residents also can access the Department of Community Affairs self-screening tool to help determine what energy assistance benefits they may qualify for.
