Energy Assistance Programs

Based on income, ERMU customers may be eligible to participate in energy assistance programs offered through local agencies. Please contact the agency directly with questions or to see if you qualify for programming. 

As many of our customers continue to feel the impact of COVID-19 and the quarantine, we want you to know that there is still financial assistance available to income-eligible households for home heating costs and other energy related fees. In fact, the Minnesota Department of Commerce recently announced that the Energy Assistance Program (EAP) has increased the maximum annual crisis benefit for a qualifying household from $600 to $1,200, and increased the income eligibility threshold for households with income at or below 50 percent of the state medium income to 60 percent.

To learn more about this program or apply, please visit the Tri-CAP website.
