The goal of Maryland Access Point (MAP) is to provide a “no wrong door” approach to improve information and access to all programs and services for which an individual may be eligible. Persons seeking services will receive navigation assistance from a single point of entry, to avoid having to go from agency to agency for information. MAP staff will assist with entitlement program applications such as Energy Assistance, Food Stamps, Homeowners & Renters Property Tax Credits, and help with Medicare or Medicaid programs. MAP staff can also provide eligibility screening & options counseling to assist individuals with determining the programs available to meet individual needs. Help is only a phone call away!
