Description of Service
The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is 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. May provide immediate assistance when heating source is disconnected.
Also provides the Crisis Intervention Program (CIP) is designed to assist with repair of the primary heating source (i.e., furnace). Repair of furnace usually within 3 days of referral.
