LEAP statistical data information and explanation.

 

(Scroll to the bottom of this page for the link to weekly statistics)

 

The state LEAP office provides weekly statistical data on specific information related to the processing of basic LEAP applications by each of the 64 county LEAP offices throughout Colorado.

 

LEAP is a mail-in program and basic LEAP applications are processed in the date order they are received in the county LEAP offices via U.S. Mail or by fax from the applicant unless the application is an emergency such as a disconnect.  The county LEAP offices have up to fifty calendar days to process basic LEAP applications from the date the application is received in the county LEAP office.

 

Delays in processing time most often relate to the LEAP applicant failing to provide the necessary basic LEAP application information (incomplete application) or by failing to provide necessary supporting documents required to process the basic LEAP applications.  The most common factors for delay are as follows:

 

  1. Sending the application to the wrong address. If your LEAP application was mailed to you please send applications in the business-reply envelope provided to you in the packet
  2. If you did not revceive your application in the mail please mail your application to your county LEAP office Failure of the applicant to sign the basic LEAP application
  3. Failure of the applicant to provide employment income verification (pay stubs)
  4. Failure of the applicant to provide copies of a heating fuel bill such as Xcel Energy, Atmos Energy, Colorado Springs Utilities, Aquila, Source Gas, Amerigas Propane, etc.
  5. Failure of the applicant to provide a copy of a receipt if they pay their heating fuel with their rent.
  6. Failure of the applicant to provide a copy of a valid identification
  7. Failure of the applicant to complete and sign the Affidavit which is part of the application, or incorrectly completing the Affidavit.

 

If the applicant fails to provide information as outlined above, the county LEAP office must stop processing the basic LEAP application and send a letter(s) to the applicant requesting the necessary information or documentation so that the application can be processed based on complete and required information and/or documentation.
