If history repeats itself, Coloradans will see lots of snow this month, which means home heating will continue to be crucial. The Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) offers help to those who are having trouble affording their home heating bills.
LEAP is a program of the Colorado Department of Human Services that helps eligible Coloradans from November through April with cash assistance for their home heating bills. As of mid-February, LEAP had approved nearly 64,000 benefits and the average benefit was $458.
