The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) is designed to help qualifying low-income Nevadans with their heating and electric costs.
Eligible households receive an annual one-time-per-year benefit called a “fixed annual credit” customarily paid directly to their energy provider(s).
The amount of assistance is based on their gross income, type of residence and annual energy usage. The minimum yearly payment for eligible households is $240.
