Commission on Low-income energy assistance

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.

It is not intended to pay the entire cost of home heating, but rather to help alleviate some of the burden associated with the colder months.


The Colorado Commission on Low-Income Energy Assistance is responsible for coordinating the State’s low-income energy assistance services pursuant to C.R.S.§ 40-8.5-103.5 and Executive Order D 026 07. The task of the Commission is to assure that energy assistance services are efficiently delivered to Colorado’s low-income households; thereby minimizing the financial burden and maintaining health and safety for the state’s most vulnerable citizens.
