The Energy Assistance Program helps income-qualified households pay for home heating and water. EAP is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Need help paying your energy bill this winter? Get help and avoid utility disconnections. Grants are based on household size and income, and on utility costs. Applicants can receive up to $2,000 per household for energy bills. Grants are paid to your Xcel Energy or CenterPoint Energy accounts.
Applications for the 2022 – 2023 Energy Assistance Program are now open. Applications are available in English, Somali and Spanish. The program is open to homeowners and renters. Applications are available at blm.mn/energyassistance.
If you need help filling out an application, come to the energy resource workshop, Thursday, October 13, 5 – 8 p.m., at Cedar Valley Church, 8600 Bloomington Ave South. Visit blm.mn/sustainability for more information.
