• Homeowners and renters can qualify for energy assistance.
• Commerce has raised the income level for households to qualify, so more Minnesota households than ever before qualify for energy assistance. For example, a household with four people can have annual income of up to $65,228 to qualify.
• You could receive up to $1,600 for energy bills and may qualify for an additional $1,200 to cover past-due bills.
• By applying for energy assistance, Minnesota households can qualify for Minnesota’s Weatherization Assistance Program to pay for free home improvements to conserve energy and permanently reduce that home’s energy costs.
