DENVER (CBS4) – Below freezing temperatures can cripple people as soon as they step outside, but some people are also trying to stay warm inside their homes.
Staying warm in the cold can be overwhelming for some Colorado families struggling to make ends meet. A program called LEAP can help. Residents are eligible for LEAP assistance based on their monthly income.
LEAP helps people get a heater or repairs. It can also help turn the heat back on for anyone with missed payments.
More than 100,000 Coloradans qualify for LEAP.
