LEAP, the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program, is a federally funded program that helps qualifying households by paying a portion of their heating costs. Applications are accepted November 1 - April 30 each year.
The Colorado Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is a federally funded program that helps eligible hard-working Colorado families, seniors, and individuals pay a portion of their winter home heating costs.
The LEAP program works to keep our communities warm during the winter (November through April) by providing assistance with heating costs, equipment repair, and/or replacement of inoperable heating tools. While the program is not intended to pay the entire cost of home heating, it can help alleviate some of the burdens that come with Colorado's colder months.
