This week, Jennifer Reeves is on the show. She and Murf are joined by Theresa Kullen, program manager of the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) at the Department of Human Services (CDHS). This program provides financial assistance for low-income households with their heating expenses during the winter months. With the winter we’ve currently had, this is an invaluable resource to help those with limited financial choices with a better quality of health and well being and to ease the financial stress. This is especially beneficial for seniors wanting to stay in their own home.
During the broadcast, Theresa shares with us information related to:
- What exactly the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) means for Coloradans.
- Why seniors are so vulnerable during the winter months.
- How to apply for the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP).
- What the qualifications are to receive funding from this program.
- Why seniors are vulnerable during the winter months.
- What Colorado Peak offers Coloradans.
- How family members can apply for the program on behalf of a senior needing help.
