The Salvation Army Northern Division Logo HeatShare Program

HeatShare is a Salvation Army Program that provides emergency utility assistance for people with no place left to turn. The program is funded in part by Salvation Army donors and by local utility companies and their customers (donate online). Funds are typically used to pay for natural gas, oil, propane and electricity.

HeatShare is offered at most Salvation Army operation centers in Minnesota. In communities where HeatShare funding isn't available, other Salvation Army partners may have resources. Call 1-800-842-7279 to get assistance in your area or learn more using the drop downs below.

  • Low-income seniors
  • Disabled people unable to maintain a steady income
  • Anybody experiencing an unexpected financial emergency

HeatShare is unlike other heat assistance programs because it's based almost exclusively on need. Though families must first prove they've been denied county or other assistance, their eligibility for HeatShare is then determined by only two factors ” need and available HeatShare funding. To get help, either call our hotline at 1-800-842-7279 or find the local office that serves your area to call them directly.

Financial support comes from utility customers and people like you who give online to Salvation Army HeatShare or via their monthly utility bills (most providers include a HeatShare donation option in statements). Additional support comes from local utility companies and other organizations.

Among others, companies that support HeatShare include: CenterPoint Energy, Xcel Energy, MERC, Minnesota Power, Rural Electric Associations of Minnesota, Minnesota Municipal Utilities, Minnesota Mechanical Contractors Association, Duluth ComfortSystems and Minnesota Active Retirees.

HeatShare has provided more than $42 million worth of assistance to over 155,000 households since 1982. Annually, about 4,200 households receive an average of $400 to keep their homes warm.

The program's budget is nearly $1.2 million a year. But that still isn't enough. Year after year, requests for assistance are typically greater than the available resources. Annually, nearly 40,000 households request HeatShare assistance.
