The Marblehead Neighbors Helping Neighbors Program

Financial Assistance for Your Electric Bill from MMLD

The Marblehead Neighbors Helping Neighbors Program is open to all residential customers of the Marblehead Municipal Light Dept. (MMLD) who directly pay an MMLD residential bill—including homeowners and renters.

To qualify, you must show that due to financial difficulties you have fallen behind on your MMLD bill payments, AND can meet certain household income guidelines, OR document a loss of income due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Our maximum Program Payment is equal to two full (2) months of past due MMLD electric bills, OR $300 to be applied to multiple MMLD electric utility bills, whichever is greater. Completed applications are evaluated in the order they are received. Your application does not guarantee funding.
