Energy/Water Assistance

About the Office of Home Energy Programs

The Office of Home Energy Programs (OHEP) provides bill assistance to low-income households in the State of Maryland to make their energy costs more affordable and to help with the prevention of loss and the restoration of home energy service.

Energy assistance will not reduce the amount of any other public assistance benefits you receive, such as TCA or Food Stamps. Nor will it reduce Social Security benefits.

OHEP provides four separate grants:

The Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP) provides financial assistance with home heating bills. Payments are made to the fuel supplier and utility company on the customer’s behalf.

 Are you or your neighbors experiencing more regular flooding in your region? Has higher water levels impacted your home, commute or access to a region that was previously regularly accessible? We want to hear about those experiences! State, county and local partners are working together to target vulnerable regions of Pocomoke City and Worcester County for possible protection, restoration or further research.
