Marion County Energy Assistance Program

About the Program
The Marion County Low Income Housing Energy Assistance Program (EAP) provides financial assistance to low-income households to maintain utility services during the winter heating season. This is a HEATING program, and Summer Cool program (when funding is available).

The John Boner Neighborhood Center and many community organizations within Marion County are collaborating to deliver the 2020 -2021 Marion County Energy Assistance Program.

Beginning October 1, throughout Marion County, households will be able to pick up a paper EAP application from John Boner Neighborhood Centers, 2236 E. 10th St. Please go to door #2 in the parking lot. Please check the three boxes affixed to the building for an application. Applications may be return to the same location using the gray dropbox at door #2.
