An estimated 120,000 more Minnesota households will qualify for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program under Dayton’s executive order.

Dayton’s order comes after propane prices have doubled, and in some cases quadrupled, in recent weeks as suppliers find it difficult to get enough of the fuel to the Upper Midwest.
