LEAP - Energy Bill Assistance

Believing that I need to explore everything that can help a person stay "above water", I applied for LEAP energy assistance yesterday. --Sue
You can download a Colorado application at: http://www.cdhs.state.co.us/LEAP/

Here is how it works:

LEAP is a federally funded program administered by the Colorado Department of Human Services and is designed to assist with your winter heating costs. The LEAP Program eligibility period runs from November 1st through April 30th.

LEAP is not intended to pay the entire cost of home heating. If you are applying for LEAP assistance you should continue to pay your home heating bill.

Eligibility Requirements - You may qualify for LEAP assistance if:

  • You are a U.S. Citizen or a legal resident of Colorado
  • You pay heating costs directly to an energy provider or you pay the cost of heating your home with your rent
  • Your gross monthly household income falls within the guidelines set annually and posted November 1st of each year. "Household" means the people who live with you and for whom you as applicant are financially responsible. The maximum gross monthly income is based on 185% of the federal poverty level
