Nevada's Energy Assistance Program (EAP) is designed to help qualifying low-income Nevadans with their heating and electric costs.

Eligibility for assistance is based on your annual gross income and the size of your household, household heating source, and type of residence.

Eligible households receive an annual one-time-per-year benefit called a “fixed annual credit” customarily paid directly to their energy provider(s).

The annual (once every 12 months) credit for eligible households is $3,136.
