The moratorium on Illinois utility customers ended on April 1st, 2021.  Those who are at 300% of the federal poverty level and below will continue to be protected from disconnection until 6/30/21, but must call their utility companies to set up a payment plan and prevent disconnection. Various utility companies including Nicor and ComEd have set up Deferred Payment Arrangements (DPAs) or Bill Payment Assistance (BPAs) programs to help their existing customers remain connected to their utility services and bring their utility bills current.  Details on these programs and other related resources are available from this fact sheet.  Affected Illinois residents may also find utility assistance programs here on DuPageCRIS.
