LEAP is a federally funded program that helps eligible Coloradans pay a portion of home heating costs
It is not intended to pay the entire cost of heating, but to help during the colder months
To receive help from this program, you must meet the following criteria:
You pay home heating costs either directly to a utility company or to a landlord as part of rent (and you do not live in subsidized housing); and
You are in a household with a US citizen or legal resident; valid forms of identification include: CO driver’s license or CO ID card, US Military ID card or Military Dependent’s ID card, US Coast Guard Merchant Mariner card, Native American Tribal document
Your household income is within 60% of state median (income limits change each LEAP season, so check each year)
Ways you can apply for LEAP:
online at colorado.gov/PEAK

Please make sure that you answer all questions on the application and provide all requested documentation/verification with your completed application. Make sure that you read, complete, sign and date where required.
