Fuel Fund

Fuel Fund: For those who need help with their energy bills and have already used OHEP or are over income for OHEP, Fuel Fund may be another option. The Fuel Fund of Maryland assists income eligible BGE customers with paying their utility bills after they complete OHEP (the person has received receipt of grants or has been denied for over income). They have recently instituted some new rules that impact process and eligibility to effectively respond to the pandemic.


  1. Waived the need for a turn off notice through 6/30/2021.
  2. Waived the need for seniors (age 60+) to complete OHEP before getting assistance from the Fuel Fund of Maryland through

6/30/2021. They will mail the consumer an OHEP application as needed.
