Energy Assistance Program Extended to July 1st
The Energy Assistance Program, which normally ends in May, has been extended to July 1st this year.
The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) provides assistance to income eligible households living in Benton, Morrison, Sherburne, and Stearns Counties by paying a portion of their home heating costs. This program is funded through the Minnesota Department of Commerce; households who are eligible are at or below 50% of the state median income guideline. Funds are available to renters and homeowners and the size of the grant is based on the household size, income, fuel type, and energy usage.
If you or someone you know is in need of energy assistance, please contact Tri-CAP at 320-251-1612 or at www.tricap.org for an application.
