Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP)
LEAP is designed to help low-income households meet their winter home heating costs; it does not pay the entire cost of home heating. LEAP is a federally funded program made available to Coloradans through the Colorado Department of Human Services. The program is administered locally at Gunnison Health and Human Services.
In addition to LEAP, Bill Payment Assistance can also be accessed through Energy Outreach Colorado, a statewide non-profit organization. Energy Outreach Colorado's funding comes from contributions from the energy industry as well as from individual energy consumers. More information on EOC Bill Payment Assistance can be found while applying for LEAP.
