Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP) provides assistance with home heating bills. Payments are made directly to utility companies to provide relief to customers. This program also provides limited funding to replace broken or inefficient refrigerators and furnaces.
Electric Universal Service Program (EUSP) provides financial assistance with current and/or past due electric and gas bills. Customers will also receive referrals for energy efficiency measures to reduce future electric bills.
Utility Service Protection Program (USPP) allows MEAP eligible households to enter into a year-round even monthly payment program with their utility company. The monthly payments are determined by using the estimated cost of the customer’s average utility usage minus the MEAP benefit.
