Office of Home Energy Programs: Through the State’s Office of Home Energy Programs, we can help support your needs paying heating, electric, and water bills. OHEP serves Frederick County residents. Grants do not need to be paid back and vary by income level and fuel type. Learn more.
Need assistance with your water and/or wastewater bill? The Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) is available now. Learn more.
