The OFFICE OF HOME ENERGY PROGRAMS (OHEP) helps low-income Maryland citizens pay their heating bills, minimize heating crises, and make energy costs more affordable. A comprehensive energy package, which includes the MARYLAND ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM & THE ELECTRIC UNIVERSAL SERVICE PROGRAM, has links to the community and the customer. These programs promote energy conservation, customer financial responsibility and energy independence.

The MARYLAND ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (MEAP) provides assistance with home heating bills. Limited assistance is available to replace broken or inefficient furnaces.

For information contact the Local Home Energy Programs Office in your area, or call 1-800-352-1446. (For the hearing impaired, 1-800-925-4434). An Application for Assistance can also be had on the Downloadable Applications and Brochures page of this web site.
Electric Universal Service Program (EUSP)

The ELECTRIC UNIVERSAL SERVICE PROGRAM (EUSP) is a state program that is administered by the Department of Human Resources to assist eligible low-income electric customers with their electric bills. Assistance is available whether you are an active customer or you are currently without service. Eligible electric customers may receive help in three ways:

  1. Help to pay current electric bills;
  2. Help to pay past due electric bills; and,
  3. Help with energy efficiency measures to reduce future electric bills.

For information contact the Local Home Energy Programs Office in your area, or call 1-800-352-1446. (For the hearing impaired, 1-800-925-4434). An Application for Assistance can also be had on the Downloadable Applications and Brochures page of this web site.

Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)
The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) has moved to the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). OHEP will continue to refer eligible customers to WAP. WAP may provide home weatherization services to eligible individuals such as weather stripping, caulking, plastic window covering, etc. to help make your home or apartment more fuel efficient and comfortable at no cost. For additional information please call 1800-638-7781 or log on to www.dhcd.state.md.us

Utility Service Protection Program (USPP)
The Utility Service Protection Program (USPP) protects low-income families from utility cut-offs and allows MEAP eligible households to enter into a year-round even monthly payment program with their utility company. An equal monthly payment plan based on the estimated cost of the customer’s average annual utility usage minus the MEAP benefit will be used to determine the even monthly payments for participation in the USPP.

For information contact the Local Home Energy Programs Office in your area, or call 1-800-352-1446. (For the hearing impaired, 1-800-925-4434). An Application for Assistance can also be had on the Downloadable Applications and Brochures page of this web site.
