Low-Income Energy Assistance

The Arapahoe County Low-income Energy Assistance Program assists low-income individuals and families with their winter heating costs.

LEAP is a federally funded program that runs from November 1 through April 30 each year. This program is intended to pay a portion, not all, of home heating costs. Once approved for benefits, LEAP can provide a financial credit direct to the heat supplier, or it can place the credit on a QUEST card to pay for a heating source such as wood, coal, propane or for heat billed on a shared meter.

LEAP is now administered by Discover Goodwill of Southern & Western Colorado and is a mail-in program only.

Please include all necessary verifications even if you have provided them before. Envelopes are available if you'd like to mail directly to:

P.O. Box 39200
Colorado Springs, CO. 80949

DO NOT submit your LEAP application to the Arapahoe County Department of Human Services as this will delay the processing of your application.

For more information regarding LEAP, please call 1-866-HEAT HELP (1-866-432-8435) or visit the website.
