Do not fertilize at this time.

The reason is that the soil which is freezing on top will not let the nutrients soak in and there is a higher risk of runoff into surface water.
Furthermore, the grass is going dormant-fertilizer should work with plant cycles. https://extension.umn.edu/planting-and-growing-guides/lawn-care-calendar
