Colorado residents behind on home heating bills still have time to apply for help. The Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) encourages Coloradans in need of financial assistance with home-heating costs to take advantage of the program and apply for LEAP benefits before the April 30 deadline.
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. The program pays the highest benefits to those with the highest heating bills and lowest incomes by family size.
