Bill Payment Assistance Program

Bill Payment Assistance provides emergency financial assistance with past-due energy bills for income-qualified Colorado residents
throughout the year.  Energy Outreach Colorado does not accept applications directly but works with partners on the local level to administer the program, including intake and processing applications, determining eligibility, and authorizing bill payments.

Do I Qualify

You are eligible if:

  • You need help paying your past-due heating and/or lighting bill to an energy provider.
  • You haven’t received Bill Payment Assistance from EOC during the current program year (the program runs from 10/1 to 9/30).
  • You make at or below 80% of the area median income.

How To Apply

Contact an EOC Local Partner Agency

To apply, directly contact the EOC local partner in your county by clicking the Find A Payment Assistance Agency button below. To complete your application, you will need to bring your ID and a copy of your past-due bill.

Apply to Other Assistance Programs

When applying for Bill Payment Assistance, EOC encourages qualifying applicants to also apply to the Colorado Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP).
