Ohio Fuel Fund
The Ohio Fuel Fund Grant Program is designed to assist residential customers with the payment of their electric bill to maintain their service, or to assist in establishing service for new electric service applicants who have an unpaid bill from a previous residence. This program support is provided through FirstEnergy corporate funds. Applicants for grant assistance must meet certain household income and other program qualification requirements.
