Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota (LSS) Energy Assistance Program Serves Residents of Crow Wing County

The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) is an important resource to help income-eligible households manage their utility bills.

Eligibility is determined by completing an application. Crisis funds can assist homes that have received a disconnect notice, are already disconnected, or have low or empty fuel tanks.

The Energy Assistance Program is a part of the nationwide Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). LIHEAP provides federally funded assistance to reduce the costs associated with home energy bills, energy crises, weatherization, and minor energy-related home repairs.

Tri-County Community Action (TCC) is our partner in providing weatherization assistance. For more information on weatherization, please refer to the Minnesota Weatherization Assistance Program website.

Applications submitted after May 31, 2024 can't be accepted. For additional crisis information please contact us using one of the following methods:

  • Phone: 218.829.5000 (press 1 for the Energy Assistance Program)
  • Mail: 716 E St., Brainerd, MN 56401
  • Email: If you are able to scan your documents or information, email it to energy@lssmn.org.

The Energy Assistance Program is funded by the State of Minnesota. Learn more about Minnesota's Energy Assistance Program.
