Utility Relief Funds

Hagerstown, MD (February 19, 2008)- Individuals interested in obtaining applications and program guidelines for receiving Utility Relief Benefit Concert funds can call the Community Action Council at 301-797-4161 or stop by the CAC offices at 101 Summit Avenue. Eligible recipients are residents of the City of Hagerstown who exceed the income guidelines of the State of Maryland Energy Assistance Programs and who have a need such as an unexpected medical bill or car repair that can be documented, which has created a burden and made it difficult to pay utility bills. The program will provide $200 which will be paid to the vendor who provides the individual heating energy such as City Light, Columbia Gas, or any of the fuel oil or propane suppliers in the community.
