Maryland is receiving about $77 million in federal funds to help low-income residents cover home energy bills.

The state has received a grant through the Low Income House Energy Assistance Program, U.S. Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin said Thursday.

The money comes to the state through the Maryland Office of Home Energy Programs, which serves 122,000 households each year. Households earning up to $38,588 and individuals earning up to $18,953 are eligible to apply for the money.
