OHEP Applications

The Office of Home Energy Programs (OHEP) has made a policy change as it relates to incomplete documentation for an energy assistance application. If the reason for application denial is due to incomplete information, the applicant has 90 days from the Notice of Denial to submit the missing eligibility documentation for the original application to be processed.

All utilities are offering 12 month payment plans with no down payment required. Contact your utility for more information. The Office of People's Counsel has created an energy assistance toolkit to help Maryland households facing utility turn-off notices. This toolkit includes videos on how to fill out the Office of Home Energy Programs application, forms, and resource guides. Visit: www.opc.maryland.gov.
