TODD COUNTY — There is still time to apply for the Energy Assistance Program.
The Energy Assistance Program helps Minnesota households pay for current and past-due bills for electricity, gas, oil, biofuel and propane, emergency fuel delivery, and repair/replacement of homeowners’ broken heating systems, and could also cover water and sewer bills by submitting one application through the Todd County Energy Assistance Program.
