Get help with energy emergencies

Additional grants for emergencies

The Energy Assistance Program provides up to $600 in additional grants for eligible Minnesotans who need help:

  • Preventing disconnection
  • Getting reconnected to heat and power after disconnections
  • Paying for emergency fuel deliveries of propane, heating oil or biofuel

For homeowners, if your furnace or heating system is broken, you may be eligible for help with heating system repair or replacement.

If you’re facing an energy emergency, call your local service provider to apply for a grant.

Another way to reduce your energy bill

The Department of Commerce also administers the Weatherization Assistance Program, which provides free home energy upgrades. The upgrades save energy and help income-eligible homeowners and renters ensure their homes are healthy and safe.

There’s no need to fill out a second application for the Weatherization Assistance Program. Eligibility is determined from applications for the Energy Assistance Program. Eligible households will be notified.
