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.
Call or visit the website for more information; the program runs from November 1 - April 30.
Individuals will need to furnish proof of lawful presence in the US
Colorado PEAK provides a questionnaire that will give people answers about whether or not they may qualify for benefits for programs that provide food assistance, cash assistance, WIC supplemental nutrition benefits, and other types of assistance. Access Colorado PEAK at https://coloradopeak.secure.force.com/.
Clients may qualify for LEAP if they:
- Pay home heating costs to an energy provider, fuel dealer, or as part of rent
- Are a permanent legal resident of the US and Colorado, or if they have household members that are US Citizens
- Have a household income that falls within the established guidelines
