We provide bill payment assistance to households across Colorado to help those who can’t afford their home energy costs.
In response to COVID-19, participants can now receive bill payment assistance two times this program year while not exceeding total program year benefit of $1,500. This program year runs from October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.
EOC successfully advocated for and received CARESAct Relief Funds to assist individuals who have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and are struggling to pay their past-due utility bills. These funds compliment LEAP, with preference given to individuals who have been denied or are ineligible for other forms of assistance such as unemployment insurance, food benefits, or direct federal stimulus payments.
Prior to receiving bill payment assistance from Energy Outreach Colorado, all eligible households must first apply for LEAP at:
- Apply online at Colorado Department of Human Services
- Call 1-866-HEAT-HELP (1-866-432-8435) to apply over the phone
You must first apply for LEAP.
- You pay home energy costs directly to an energy vendor/utility
