LEAP is a federally funded program that helps eligible Colorado families, seniors, and individuals pay a portion of their winter home heating costs. Enrollment in the program opens on November 1st. The amount of the energy assistance benefit varies depending on a variety of factors, including the primary heating fuel costs and income. The program does not provide financial assistance for any type of temporary or portable heating. In most cases the energy assistance benefit is paid directly to the household energy supplier.

LEAP pays the highest benefits to those with the highest primary heating fuel costs. In most cases, if you are approved for LEAP, payments are made directly to your primary heating fuel vendor and a notice will be sent to you informing you of the benefit amount. Other benefits provided by LEAP include repair or replacement of a home’s primary heating system, such as a furnace or wood-burning stove.
