Denver - Denver residents can stay warm this winter with help from Denver Human Services through the Low-income Energy Assistance Program, or LEAP, which begins accepting applications November 1. LEAP, a statewide program, is available for qualifying households through April 30, 2019. Applying for LEAP is simple. Applications may be requested by calling 1-866-HEAT-HELP (432-8435), or by visiting www.denvergov.org/LEAP.

Qualifying individuals and families can use these resources to stay warm, save money on heating costs, and use their remaining cash to pay for other necessities during the winter months. During the 2018/2019 season, more than 7,100 households received support through LEAP.
