Need help paying your energy bill? Energy assistance now available
Minnesota Energy Resources wants to make sure all customers are able to pay their bills and stay warm this
winter. Starting Oct.1, customers can apply for energy assistance for the upcoming heating season.
To see if you are eligible and to apply, visit the Minnesota Energy Assistance Program (EAP) website or call 800-
657-3710 to find the EAP provider in your county.
The amount of energy assistance depends on a number of factors, including household size, income and
energy costs. You do not have to be behind on your bill to be eligible.
In addition, Minnesota Energy Resources’ customers who have received an EAP grant may qualify
for assistance through the company’s Gas Affordability Program (GAP), which is administered by the
Salvation Army. Applications for GAP can be found on the Minnesota Energy Resources website
