Do you need help paying your heating and electric bills?  The Service Coordination Division administers the Office of Home Energy Program (OHEP).  We can help make your energy costs more affordable.  DON’T DELAY! APPLY TODAY!  Stop in to our offices to meet with one of our coordinators or call 301-334-9431 and ask for the Service Coordination Division to speak to a coordinator by phone. Clients need to bring in a photo ID, social security cards for all household members, proof of all income for the past 30 days, their most recent utility bill, and a copy of their current lease if they rent.

• The Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP) provides assistance grants to eligible individuals or families with home heating bills.  This assistance is meant to provide a subsidy to your heating bills and does not pay your entire bill.

• The Electric Universal Service Program (EUSP) provides financial assistance with electric bills.  Eligible electric customers may receive help to pay current electric bills or past due bills.
