Resources for Colorado Low-income Energy Assistance Program recipients
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. Below, find resources related to LEAP.
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.
