Welcome to the Colorado Low-Income Energy Assistance Program
LEAP is a federally funded program that helps eligible hard working Colorado families, seniors and individuals pay a portion of their winter home heating costs. Our goal is to help bring warmth, comfort and safety to your home and family by assisting with heating costs during the all-too-often harsh Coloradan winters.
If you are eligible for LEAP, you may also qualify for other benefits listed below.
- The Crisis Intervention Program operates year-round and provides assistance with the repair or replacement of the home's primary heating system such as a furnace or wood-burning stove.
- The Weatherization Program is offered through the Governor’s Energy Office and is designed to improve the energy efficiency in homes throughout Colorado, helping to permanently reduce heating costs.
- Colorado also offers a rebate of property tax, rent and heat expenses to low-income seniors and disabled persons. Known as the Property Tax/Rent/Heat Credit (PTC) rebate, the maximum property tax rebate is $660 and the maximum heat expenses rebate is $192. The Colorado Department of Revenue administers the rebate.
- The Colorado Commission on Low-Income Energy Assistance is responsible for the State's low-income energy assistance services. The Commission assures that energy assistance services are efficiently delivered to Colorado's low-income households.
