Repairs, Maintenance, and Energy Efficiency
Energy Assistance Program
The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) helps Minnesota households pay for current and past-due bills for electricity, gas, oil, biofuel and propane, emergency fuel delivery, and repair/replacement of homeowners’ broken heating systems, and could also cover water and sewer bills. By submitting one application through EAP, households could qualify for payments to cover both water and energy bills, and qualify them for the Minnesota Weatherization Program. Grants are for renters or homeowners with income at or below 60 percent of the state median income. For more information, visit mn.gov/energyassistance or call 800-657-3710 and press 1.
