Utility Assistance

Our centers offer help for individuals and families who are at risk of a utility shutoff. Utility assistance may include help with natural gas, electricity, water, propane, and fuel oil bills, and is offered as funding is available.

In North Dakota, all utility assistance is handled on a county-by-county basis. In Minnesota, in addition to general utility help, we offer these programs to keep the heat on:

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.
