Capitol Newsletter from Rep. Spencer Igo

Thursday, February 4, 2021

Dear Neighbors,

Looks like extremely cold temperatures are heading our way this weekend and into next week. Be sure to throw an extra pair of boots and a warmer jacket in your trunk if you are out and about this weekend. I also hope you’ll tune into the Super Bowl on Sunday. I’m a diehard Vikings fan and I know the day is soon that we will be watching a Vikings Super Bowl!

Also, kudos to the Grand Rapids boys hockey team for their undefeated record and #6 ranking in the latest Class AA poll. Way to go, boys! 

PPP Seminar

Tomorrow, Friday, Minnesota’s Small Business Association (SBA) office will be hosting a virtual seminar to answer any questions business owners and administrators may have about the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The seminar is tailored specifically for non-profits and businesses owned by people of color. 

The goal of this seminar is to increase business owners’ comfort with PPP, learn best practices to increase chances of success, and answer questions by folks working in our communities. You can register for the seminar at this link.

Low Income Energy Assistance Program 

As Minnesotans continue to feel the impact of COVID-19, I want you to know that there is still assistance available to income-eligible households (both owners and renters) for home heating bills and furnace repairs. The Energy Assistance Program can help by providing financial assistance:

  • To pay past due energy bills to avoid disconnection
  • To purchase fuel for delivery in emergencies
  • To repair or replace homeowners’ malfunctioning furnaces.

The application period is open until May 31st, 2021. Click here for more information and to apply:

Staying in Touch

I will be introducing several bills in the coming days and plan to get you up-to-speed on what I’m working on in my next newsletter.

Until then, please do not hesitate to contact me. As your representative, it is my duty to listen to your thoughts, questions, and concerns regarding state government. I can be reached by phone at 651-296-4936 or via email at

Have a great day,
