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.

Commerce raised the income eligibility limit to 60% of Minnesota’s median income levels ($46,080 per year for a family of two) and has significantly increased the benefit amounts to reduce energy burdens more than ever, including up to $2,000 for energy bills, plus up to $1,200 for past-due energy bills.

To apply, call Todd County Energy Assistance at 888-838-4066 or 320-732-4516, or go online to mn.gov/energyassistance for a printable application.
