Chester County Emergency Rent & Utility Assistance Program

The Emergency Rent & Utility Assistance Program serves Chester County residents and can only be accessed by dialing 2-1-1. Please follow the three steps below:

1. Press 2 for Homelessness and Housing Crisis
2. Press 2 for Chester County
3. Press 2 for Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Funding will serve individuals and families that are obligated to pay rent and meet the following three criteria:

  • Households obligated to pay rent.
  • Qualified for unemployment or have experienced financial hardship due, directly or
    indirectly, to the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
  • Have a household income at or below 80 percent of the area median (income limits are
    subject to change per guidance from the federal government).

Once the client has contacted 2-1-1 for intake and referral, they will need to gather information for submission. Those who are eligible can use the emergency rent and utility funding to pay for outstanding rent, electricity, gas, water, and sewer; and energy costs such as fuel oil or propane, over a 15-month period. To view the application checklist, visit:

We have seen an increase in reports of payment scams in your area. These scammers are contacting PECO customers and falsely claiming their electric or gas service will be disconnected unless payment is made immediately. These scammers use tactics such as “spoofing” to manipulate the Caller ID phone number displayed on your phone so that it appears to be a PECO phone number.
PECO will never demand immediate payment, nor will we ever require one specific form of payment, such as a prepaid card or digital currency. Do not pay on-site for services, PECO employees will never ask for or demand cash payments or personal banking information in-person. You should never provide anyone access to your home who claims to be from PECO, or a contractor working for PECO, unless the person has proper identification.
For more information on payment scams and what you can do to keep your information safe, visit peco.com/scams. If you are ever suspicious of a caller claiming to be from PECO, hang up and call us directly at 1-800-494-4000.

Leaf collection: 

Please place fallen leaves in cans covered with lids or biodegradable paper bags. Yard and Leaf waste may be placed in the same biodegradable paper bags.
