Keeping the Lights On

Energy assistance is a blessing to those who are forced to choose between rent and utilities.

Utility Assistance

During a long, cold winter, your heat bill swells and you receive a notice from your energy provider that all utilities will be disconnected unless you can pay the overdue balance. Or, maybe a job loss forced you to choose between paying rent or paying your electric bill. You chose rent and just received an electric shut off notice. We can help.

HeatShare Program
Our HeatShare program is offered at most Salvation Army centers in Minnesota and can pay your utility bill once you have a shut-off notice in hand. Call the HeatShare hotline at 1-800-842-7279 for immediate help. Find out if you qualify and get HeatShare program details.

Gas Affordability Program
The Salvation Army is an administrator for the Gas Affordability Program (GAP) that provides qualifying customers of Minnesota utility companies with gas bill assistance. View the GAP program details and get help.
