Poverty and the increasing cost of food, energy and other essentials can force some limited-income households to choose between putting food on the table or paying their heating bill. The Fuel Fund, an independent 501-c3 non-profit organization, provides energy assistance to help pay heating and utility bills for thousands of our neighbors in need.

How Can You Help?
Last year, more than 19,000 Maryland individuals received help from those who generously donated to the Fuel Fund of Maryland. Please consider helping families who can't afford to heat their homes this winter by giving to the Fuel Fund of Maryland. Your contributions go directly to those who need assistance. For information or to learn how to donate, visit the Fuel Fund Web site.

There are two other easy ways to donate to the Fuel Fund:

  • Enroll in the Dollar Donation Fund and BGE will add a donation to your bill every month in the amount you choose; or
  • Add a little extra for the Fuel Fund when you pay your BGE bill. You'll see instructions when you pay online through

Who Is Eligible?
Households eligible for other programs may also qualify for the Fuel Fund. Higher income households may be eligible if there is financial hardship, such as unemployment or high medical bills.

Where Do I Apply?
An applicant must first apply for the MEAP/EUSP Program at the Maryland Office of Home Energy Programs (OHEP) before applying for the Fuel Fund. For more information on MEAP and EUSP call the Office of Home Energy Programs at 800.352-1446, or your local MEAP office.

The Fuel Fund gives needed assistance to families through many offices. More information can also be found in our Community Resource Guide (English or Spanish).
