Eastern CAP Center Relocates as Part of Restructure

BALTIMORE, MD. — To serve city residents in a more effective and efficient manner with their energy assistance needs, Baltimore City Community Action Partnership (CAP) is closing its Office of Home Energy Programs (OHEP) located at 2700 N. Charles Street and designating all of its Community Action Partnership centers as intake sites for energy assistance applicants. 


Baltimore City CAP is also relocating its Eastern CAP Center from the Oliver Recreation Center located at 1400 E. Federal Street to 1731 E. Chase Street. “The decision to have Community Action Partnership centers expand energy intake to their existing services will increase client accessibility and decrease the amount of time it takes to process applications,” said Lori Cunningham, Baltimore City Community Action Partnership Director. “We’ll also be able to best serve residents in the surrounding eastern neighborhoods by relocating the Eastern CAP Center to Chase Street.”

Starting Monday, July 2, 2018, Baltimore City residents seeking to apply for energy assistance are encouraged to apply online or via mail in order to avoid lengthy wait times at centers. Applicants may apply online at https://mydhrbenefits.dhr.state.md.us, or by mail to 1731 E. Chase Street, Baltimore, MD 21213. Residents may apply in-person at any Community Action Partnership Center (see locations below); priority will be given to households without utility service.
