Eligible low income Douglas County households may apply for energy assistance through the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) from November 1, 2012 through April 30, 2013.
LEAP is designed to help eligible, low-income households with winter home heating costs. Eligibility is based on gross monthly household income and the number of persons in a household. LEAP is not intended to pay the entire cost of home heating. Additional information, applications and eligibility verifications are available at www.douglas.co.us/humanservices/LEAP.html
Applicants will need to provide the following with their application: proof of income from all sources; a copy of their most recent heating bill showing the company name, address and account numbers, or a copy of the most recent rent receipt stating heat included in rent; proof of identification (valid driver’s license); and a signed Affidavit of Proof of Citizenship or Lawful Presence.
