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:
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.
The following will explain each one of the columns on the LEAP Weekly Statistical Data. The totals are cumulative from the beginning of the LEAP Program year (November 1st) to the date of the weekly report.
