The Energy Assistance Program (season 2021-22) began October 1, 2021 and ends May 31, 2022. The program helps income eligible homeowners & renters with assistance toward their heating & electric bills. The eligibility rates were not available at the time of this publication. However, to give you an idea, the 2020 eligibility qualifications meant that a single person’s three-month income needed to be less than $7,066 and a two-person household needed to be less than $9,240. This year’s rates are likely slightly higher. Applications are available on-line or by mail via the ACCAP website or call ACCAP at 763-783-4712 to request an application. Patty Marz, an ACCAP representative is available to assist you with this paperwork on the second Tuesday of each month at the Coon Rapids Senior Center from 10am-12noon or by private appointment by calling 763-783-4741 ext.5.
