Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program
The Minnesota Energy Assistance Program (EAP) administers Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program funds appropriated through the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services. The Department of Commerce administers EAP in Minnesota, and they are asking for cities' help with getting the word out to residents. Low-income Minnesotans are eligible to apply for the funds, and the deadline for the 2019 program is May 31. Please include this information in your communications to residents, if possible.

Americas Best Communities
The Chisago Lakes Area is advancing in the competition. What started out with 450 cities is now down to the final 15. The Chisago Lakes group will be traveling to Durham, North Carolina, in April to make a presentation. The presentation includes all of the ideas and projects that have come to the forefront during the whole process -- exciting things like a new Water Trail, business development ideas, marketing -- new logo, website, etc., and lots more. After the presentation, the top 8 will be chosen to continue -- each receiving $100,000 to start implementing their plans. After a year, the top three will be awarded $3,000,000 -- $2,000,000 -- or $1,000,000 for their projects. Exciting things are happening!! Stay tuned...
