Use these instructions and application to apply for the Minnesota Energy Assistance Program or Weatherization Assistance Program to help pay heating and energy costs and use energy more efficiently.

The Energy Assistance Program (EAP)

helps pay home heating costs and furnace repairs for income-qualified renters and homeowners.

 

Services include:

 

  • Assistance with energy bill payments.
  • Help with utility disconnections or necessary fuel deliveries.
  • Resources to Repair or replace malfunctioning heating systems for homeowners.
  • Education regarding efficient and safe home heating practices.
  • Support through advocacy with energy suppliers and human service providers.

 

To be eligible, total household income must fall below 50 percent of the state median income. Applicants with the lowest incomes and highest heating expenses receive the largest grants and can range from 15 to 75 percent of home heating bill costs.

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

allows income-qualified households to permanently reduce their energy bills by helping make their homes more energy efficient while protecting the health and safety of family members.

 

This federally funded program includes services for the following home improvements:

 

  • Energy audits to evaluate potential weatherization work
  • Exterior wall and attic insulation
  • Air infiltration and bypass sealing
  • Mechanical system testing, repair, or replacement
