More Funding for Furnace Repair This Winter

An additional $500,000 in funding is available this winter for low-income Coloradans who can’t afford to repair their non-working home heating system. Energy Outreach Colorado administers the statewide Crisis Intervention Programand has $2.5 million in federal funding from Colorado’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) for use between Nov. 1, 2015 and Oct. 30, 2016. Families and individuals who qualify for LEAP assistance are eligible for CIP.

“We completely spent last year’s budget of $2 million, plus an extension of $400,000, helping 1,888 Colorado households who otherwise would have had to go without heat or sacrifice in other ways to heat their homes,” said James Bradshaw, CIP program manager. “We’re doing all we can to get the word out about this program so that we can provide quality, efficient service to help as many struggling Coloradans as possible.”

Those interested in applying for CIP call toll-free 1-855-4-MY-HEAT (1-855-469-4328) to request home heating system repair or replacement, as well as snow removal for fuel delivery in rural areas. The program does not provide for regular maintenance and servicing of home heating systems. Repair services for CIP are provided through a statewide network of licensed, certified and insured HVAC contractors managed by Energy Outreach Colorado.  (PIctured, EOC's James Baldwin with a furnace repair recipient)
