Last chance to apply for LEAP is April 30

This just in from our friends at Eagle County government: The last opportunity for families to apply for the Low-income Energy Assistance Program is April 30. LEAP is an annual financial assistance program that runs from November through April each winter, designed to reduce household energy bills by paying a portion of the cost of home heating for qualifying, limited-income households.

Each qualified home may receive only one benefit or subsidy for the entire season. If a household has already applied and received a benefit this season, they should not re-apply.

For those who have not claimed their LEAP benefit this season, applications are available in English and Spanish at or can be obtained by calling 1-888-775-LEAP (1-888-775-5327).

LEAP applications may be mailed to LEAP, P.O. Box 39200, Colorado Springs, CO 90949, faxed to 719-633-9098 or emailed to Call Discover Goodwill at 1-888-775-5327 or Heat Help at 1-866-432-8435 for more information.
