As temperatures drop many people are soon going to see their utility bill rise. While money remains tight for many because of inflation, a high heating bill is the latest thing to affect consumers.
There are ways individuals and families can get help on a portion of their utility bills. Colorado’s Low-Income Assistance Program, or LEAP, is a federally funded program to help pay those bills during the winter.
Those making less than 60% of the state’s median income level qualify for help. For example, a family of four has to make less that $5,500 per month to be eligible.
Applications for LEAP are available now at cdhs.colorado.gov/leap. Or call 1-866-432-8435 to learn more.
