The average energy assistance grant is $500 per household. Low-income households that qualify are served on a first-come, first-served basis.

Apply for energy assistance through local energy providers. The program pays utility providers directly. A list of the 34 providers around the state is available by calling (800) 657-3710 or at www.energy.mn.gov.

Other forms of assistance may be available through county social service programs, community-based organizations and nonprofit agencies. See www.staywarm.mn.gov for a list of resources.
