Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is a federally funded program administered by the Colorado Department of Human Services and is available November 1st through April 30th each year. Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) also provides some of the funding for LEAP. LEAP is designed to help with your winter heating costs. LEAP is not intended to pay the entire cost of home heating. If you are applying for LEAP assistance, you should continue to pay your heating bill.
