Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP)


LEAP applications are no longer accepted for the 2017-2018 season. The program is scheduled to re-open in November 2018.

LEAP, the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program, is a federally funded program that helps qualifying households by paying a portion of their heating costs. Applications are accepted November 1 - April 30 each year.

To receive help from this program, you must meet all the following criteria:

  • You are a U.S. citizen or legal resident, or be part of a household with a legal resident;
  • You pay heating costs to an energy company or as part of rent; and
  • You meet the income guidelines for the season. (Guidelines are subject to change each LEAP season, so applicants should check the guidelines on November 1 of each year.)


If you need energy assistance, please contact Energy Outreach Colorado toll-free at 1-866-HEAT-HELP (1-866-432-8435) or at
