Assistance with Utility Disconnection in Silver SpringFind more information from the following link(s):
Emergency Services with Housing Stabilization offers assistance to Montgomery County residents who are facing utility disconnection (heating fuel included). Grants are available to eligible customers after submission of an application and an interview. Customers are seen on a first come, first served basis and must visit one of the Emergency Services offices, based on zip code.
Assistance is generally limited to once every 12 months, but special circumstances will be considered by the local Emergency Services regional office (or Housing opportunities office if in HOC subsidized housing). HHS customers must have a utility disconnect notice but non-profit groups can be contacted without a notice although an assessment by HHS may be required prior to acceptance of a referral.
For HOC customers, contact HOC. HOC Silver Spring Office; 8241 Georgia Avenue, 3rd Floor, Silver Spring, MD. 20910, call 240-773-9307 for an appointment.
