Last chance to apply for LEAP is April 30; year-round energy assistance options available for income-qualified households

Contact: Kathleen Lyons, Economic Services Director, 970-328-8841, kathleen.lyons@eaglecounty.us 

April 18, 2018 – The last opportunity for families to apply for the Low-income Energy Assistance Program is April 30. LEAP is an annual financial assistance program which 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 www.eaglecounty.us/EconomicServices/Energy_Assistance 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 LEAPHELP@discovermygoodwill.org. Call Discover Goodwill at 1-888-775-5327 or Heat Help at 1-866-432-8435 for more information.

After April 30, qualifying households may still apply for a variety of programs to aid with reducing energy bills, home energy upgrades and furnace repairs.

For residents seeking aid with home energy upgrades, the Weatherization Assistance Program of the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments has the ability to weatherize low- and moderate-income homes to help reduce fuel consumption and heating costs. Services include insulation, caulking, weather-stripping, installation of storm windows and new energy-efficient furnaces and refrigerators. If a resident qualifies for LEAP, they automatically qualify for NWCCOG’s Weatherization services. Call 1-800-332-3669 for additional information.

The Community Office for Resource Efficiency located in Aspen and Energy Smart Colorado at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon also provide home energy assistance upgrades to income-qualified homes. Depending on household needs, energy upgrades could include a furnace or boiler tune-up and safety check, insulation and air sealing, high-efficiency refrigerator, high-efficiency water heater, LED light bulbs, programmable thermostat and low-flow shower heads. Residents will not have to pay for any of these improvements if energy coaches determine they need to be upgraded or replaced.

To determine eligibility, visit www.energysmartcolorado.com/incomequalified for Eagle River Valley Residents or https://aspencore.org/income-qualified/ for Roaring Fork Valley residents.

For residents with a non-functioning furnace, Energy Outreach Colorado has an emergency home furnace repair program for those who already qualify for LEAP. Households with a broken furnace are asked to call the Crisis Intervention Program at 855-469-4328 for repairs or replacements, as well as snow removal for fuel delivery in rural areas.
