Description of Service
Provides a federally funded program designed to help qualifying low-income households cover part of their winter home heating costs from November 1st - April 30th. Once benefits are approved, LEAP can provide a financial credit directly to the heat supplier, or it can place the credit on a QUEST card to pay for a heating source such as wood, coal, propane, or for heat billed on a shared meter.
Call, walk in, or visit the website to request an application; applications need to be submitted to determine eligibility. Once completed, they may be scanned and emailed, dropped off, or mailed.
Clients can call the LEAP hotline at 1-866-432-8435 or visit the website at www.EnergyOutreach.org to locate a partner agency in their county who may be able to help.
