The Arapahoe County Weatherization Assistance Program is not an emergency repair or replacement program. The program may repair or replace a water heater and/or furnace if we determine the need during the provision of other energy saving measures such as insulation or refrigerator replacement.
Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) approved customers who have a NO HEAT emergency may contact the Crisis Intervention Program (CIP) at 855-469-4328 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
