The Prince George’s County Department of Social Services accepts donations of new clothing, shoes and toys all-year-round. We collect donations of food baskets during our annual Holiday Sharing Campaign, which runs from October-December. To donate an item to the Department of Social Services, please contact the Office of Volunteer Services at 301-909-6319.
When you contact the agencies or organizations who administer the program, an application will be sent to you. If you prefer, you may pick up an application at any Department of Social Services branch office or apply on-line via SAIL. Learn more on the Energy Assistance page.
You are able to receive assistance once within a calendar year (July 1 to June 30). The Energy Assistance Programs provide a one-time only grant which will be based on your household income and energy usage.
You may contact our Emergency Assistance Program to see if you qualify for assistance. You may also access MD Hope for more information about foreclosure assistance. Learn more on the Emergency Assistance page.
Energy Assistance Staff will process your application and make sure all required information has been submitted. Please note that it can take up to 30 days to process an application. Learn more on the Energy Assistance page.
