Energy Assistance Program processing applications from week Oct. 10, 2022

Published On: October 24th, 2022|Categories: Updates|

We are currently working applications that we received the week of October 10, 2022. Applications can take 8 to 10 weeks to complete, you will be notified by mail or email if you qualify or not.  During this time, we encourage you to contact your energy provider to schedule a reasonable payment plan. 

Please call or email our office if you are facing disconnection or low (20% or less) to no fuel and your vendor has refused you a delivery.  You were sent a letter of receipt when your application was received in our office and it can take up to 10 weeks to process your application.  You will be notified by mail or email if additional information is needed or when eligibility is determined.  Thank you.

PROGRAM NOTICE: During the pandemic, the Energy Assistance Program (EAP) received supplemental COVID funding. Beginning October 1, 2022, EAP’s funding will be lowered to pre-COVID levels. In response, the Minnesota Department of Commerce has rolled back the program’s income eligibility guidelines.  We expect EAP grant amounts will also be lowered to pre-COVID amounts (lower than previous assistance year). This may result in some households now being over-income for the program. Please be aware of current guidelines when applying for Energy Assistance.
