- Fax your application to 719-633-9098
- Mail to: LEAP

A few suggested tips are; ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS on the application and provide all requested documentation/verification with your completed application. Make sure that you read, complete, SIGN and DATE where required. Failure to provide a complete application and submit required verification will delay the processing timeframe.
Continue paying your heat bill, as LEAP assistance will not pay your entire bill!
