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 2023-2024 program will include assistance with electricity and heating. The program will no longer help with water bills.

The John Boner Neighborhood Center and many community organizations within Marion County are collaborating to deliver the 2023-2024 Marion County Energy Assistance Program.

Beginning October 2, 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 black boxes affixed to the building for an application. Applications may be returned to the same location using the gray drop box slot at door #2.
