Would you like to manage your monthly gas bills and pay past-due balances?
Great Plains Natural Gas Co. offers its Minnesota customers a Gas Affordability Program (GAP) that helps qualified customers manage their monthly gas heating bills and pay past-due balances.
To qualify for the program, you must have received a Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) grant for the current heating season. To apply for LIHEAP, please refer to the contact information listed in this document.
GAP offers qualifying customers two types of credit:
- Monthly Affordability Credit for current natural gas charges:
Your monthly natural gas charges will be averaged for the year. You will receive a monthly credit so your annual gas bill will not be more than 4 percent of your household income.
- Matching GAP Installment Credit for past-due natural gas charges:
Great Plains will set up a GAP Installment Plan to help you pay off your past-due bill over a period of up to 24 months. Each month you pay your GAP installment amount, a matching GAP credit will be applied to your account. If you make your payment each month, you will be paying for only one-half of your past-due balance.
To learn more about the GAP or to apply for the program, contact The Salvation Army or visit our website at www.gpng.com. GAP applications are also available from any of the Energy Assistance offices serving Great Plains’ customers.

GAP applications are also available from any of the Energy Assistance offices serving Great Plains’ customers.
