The Colorado Low-Income Energy Assistance Program can help Douglas County residents pay for winter heating costs. Help is available through April 30, and residents who qualify will get a minimum of $300.
Applications are available from the Department of Human Services, 4400 Castleton Court in Castle Rock; Douglas/Elbert Task Force, 1638 Park St. in Castle Rock; and Parker Task Force, 19105 Longs Way in Parker.
Applications must be turned in to Discover Goodwill of Central and Southern Colorado, one of Douglas County's community-based partners, which will process all applications. A postage-paid envelope will be provided, or applications and other required documentation can be sent to LeapHelp@discovermygoodwill.org.
Discover Goodwill also processes applications for Energy Outreach Colorado, which helps residents with furnace repairs and home weatherization. This is a separate application, and applicants for Energy Outreach funds also must have applied for LEAP assistance. Go to www.energyoutreach.org for information.
Utility customers of Black Hills, Xcel, Atmos or Colorado Natural Gas applying for LEAP or EOC will also have to complete a consent form to allow Discover Goodwill to talk to your utility company. Applications and consent forms (if applicable) may also be emailed to LeapHelp@discovermygoodwill.org
Go to www.douglas.co.us and search for LEAP for information.
