Program Description

The Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP), Nationally known as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), is a federally-funded program that helps low-income households with their home energy bills. LIHEAP can help you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By doing so, you can reduce the risk of health and safety problems (such as illness, fire, or eviction).

The Maryland LIHEAP program may be able to offer you one or more of the following types of assistance:

  • Bill payment assistance.
  • Energy crisis assistance.
  • Weatherization and energy-related home repairs.

Program Requirements

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)
1 $20,790
2 $28,035
3 $35,280
4 $42,525
5 $49,770
6 $57,015
7 $64,278
8 $71,558

*For households with more than eight people, add $7,280 per additional person. Always check with the appropriate managing agency to ensure the most accurate guidelines.

The LIHEAP program in your community ultimately determines if your household’s income qualifies for the program.

You must be a resident of the state of Maryland and you must need financial assistance with home energy costs.

The Maryland LIHEAP program may also require households to meet additional eligibility criteria to receive LIHEAP assistance.

A person who participates or has family members who participate in certain other benefit programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or certain needs-tested Veterans benefits may be automatically eligible.
