Energy Related Repairs Program
The Energy Assistance Program can help you pay energy costs-- such as a heating bill-- between Oct 1 and May 30 each year. If you qualify, you could receive a grant to cover some of your energy expenses. This grant is paid directly to your energy provider, to reduce your energy bill.

The Energy Related Repairs (ERR) Program provides emergency repair or replacement of broken/non-functioning heating systems (ex. furnace) for Energy Assistance clients. 

To be eligible for assistance with your heating system you must submit an Energy Assistance Application and be approved 

To contact CAP-HC about problems with your heating system please call 952-697-1411. If you have an after-hours emergency please call 651-796-4412. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can apply for energy assistance?

Both homeowners and renters may be eligible for assistance. Renters that don't pay their heat may also be eligible for energy assistance.

Do you have to pay the money back?

No. Energy Assistance is given as a grant, not a loan. You do not need to repay it.
