Individuals can apply for LEAP by picking up an application at MCDSS which comes with a pre-paid return envelope. Individuals can apply through www.colorado.gov/PEAK, or they can visit Discover Goodwill at www.discovermygoodwill.org and apply.
If an individual has an emergency and shut off notice, they can bring their application and shut-off notice to the MCDSS office and their application will be faxed to Goodwill the same day to prevent their heat source being shut off.
The LEAP eligibility requirements can be found at https://cdhs.colorado.gov/leap under “program eligibility”
